WHAT IS PIXL EDGE?
The PiXL Edge is a framework to develop and accredit students with those personal attributes essential for employability and life. The scheme will focus on five key attributes:
WHY HAVE WE INTRODUCED PIXL EDGE?
At Alperton Community School we want to make sure that we do everything possible to equip our students with the skills necessary for success. It is with this goal in mind that we have launched PiXL Edge.
HOW MANY DIFFERENT LEVELS ARE THERE?
Students will qualify at three levels – PiXL Apprentice, PiXL Graduate and PiXL Master – having completed activity programmes related to the key attributes and accredited through the NCFE examination board.
HOW WILL PIXL EDGE WORK AT ALPERTON COMMUNITY SCHOOL?
At Alperton Community School we are launching the PIXL Edge programme for our Year 7, 8, 9 and 10s.
HOW DOES THE ‘APPRENTICE LEVEL’ WORK?
Every student in Year 7, 8 and 9 will be entered for the Apprentice Level. All students must complete two activities in each of the five attributes.
HOW DOES THE ‘GRADUATE LEVEL’ WORK?
Activities at this level are more demanding. At this level you complete 8 activities in total (one for each attribute and 3 others of your own choice).
HOW DOES THE ‘MASTERS LEVEL’ WORK?
These are the most demanding activities. At Masters Level students will need to complete 6 activities in total (one for each attribute and one additional one of your own choice).
Every activity must be evidenced and signed off by a member of staff.
