Enrichment

Students at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College participate in the College Enrichment Programme, which enables them to develop essential personal and work-related skills, including:

  • Confidence and Resilience
  • Communication and Interpersonal Skills
  • Teamwork and Leadership
  • Planning and Organisation
  • Valuing Diversity and Difference
  • Problem Solving and Negotiation
  • Self-Care and Personal Wellbeing

The opportunity to develop these skills is an essential part of our students' personal development, and will assist them when applying for higher education courses, apprenticeships and employment.

Students choose from an internal enrichment pathway of Wellbeing, Money Matters or Preparation for the World of Work. They then build upon this with their own choice of activity. Currently these include:

  • Pre-Teaching Qualification
  • STAR Support Club
  • Debate Club
  • Football Team
  • Netball Team
  • Rugby Team
  • Gym Club
  • Guitar Club
  • Fine Art/Sculpture
  • Sixth Form Student Council
