"The department has been delivering the AIMVOC qualifications at entry level over the past two years. We began with 21 learners completing three AIMVOCS. After an effective year, in which all learners successfully completed their qualifications, along with excellent feedback from both learners, parents and staff, we expanded our programme offer to include AIMVOCS in Hair and Beauty, Art and Design and Drama and Photography. Through the delivery of AIMVOC qualifications we have seen a positive change in learner’s engagement, motivation and behaviour. Staff have often commented that learners can be fully engaged in a practical vocational lesson allowing them to learn and achieve more. Learners take pride in their work and there is an increase in their own aspirations and ambition. Learners have developed new skills in a vocational area, such as hairdressing, but also, quite significantly, have developed their transferable skills including communication, employability, negotiation skills and confidence".
