TBAP Cambridge AP Academy supports up to 35 Secondary learners who have experienced difficulties with their learning and behaviour in mainstream school. The Academy takes referrals from a wide variety of secondary schools across Cambridge and the surrounding villages, predominantly focussing on Years 9-11. Learners are taught in small groups and follow a core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, Food Technology and PE and have the choice of two further options from two blocks. All learners also follow a CEIAG programme from Y9 to Y11 which has been recognised by the Local Authority CEIAG Manager as 'Very Good'. At KS3, the core curriculum is supported by an Enrichment programme which aims to develop learners' social skills, resilience and love of learning in different settings. There is an aspiration that all KS4 learners have a weekly timetable of work experience to help them prepare and make informed choices about their future pathways. Learners who are struggling to engage are supported with a creative wraparound programme which can include home tuition and is supported by the TBAP Inclusion Panel that monitors all learners on a bi-weekly basis.
To build positive relationships with the learners, act as a positive role model to them and support teachers by taking responsibility for learning interventions (such as Lego Therapy and Phonics) to address barriers to learning and ensure learners engage and access the curriculum. This may involve planning, preparing and delivering learning interventions for individuals/ groups as well as recording and reporting on achievement, behaviour for learning and progress.
