- Student Life
There is more to life at RSFC than just gaining your qualifications. We want you to achieve your potential in and out of the classroom. That’s why all students at RSFC complement their academic studies by taking part in our extensive enrichment programme. Enrichment teaches you new skills and builds on your existing subject knowledge to make you stand out from the crowd when applying for university or employment.
All students engage in a bespoke enrichment programme, which focuses on developing the same essential skills to support your progression to higher education and employment.
- Presentation skills
- Lateral thinking
- Independent research
- Critical thinking & problem solving
- Resilience & resourcefulness
In your first term, you will choose a ten-week programme, on either the pre-graduate or pre-professional pathway: The pre-graduate pathway is based around specific subject areas and is designed to consolidate and develop your knowledge in preparation for university application. Some pre-graduate programmes link directly to existing A level subjects, whereas others are intended to bridge the gap between sixth form and university courses. The pre-professional pathway is based around a career, rather than an academic subject, and is designed to develop your understanding of a specific job role. You will learn about the skills and knowledge needed for a certain type of employment and in some cases have the opportunity to undertake a related work placement.
In the second term, you will have a choice of selecting another ‘pre-graduate’ or ‘pre-professional’ enrichment programme or choosing a ‘wider skills’ enrichment activity. The wider skills enrichment activities are varied in nature and aim to give you the chance to develop new skills that go beyond traditional classroom study.
