Oastlers School Vision Statement for (CoPE) Certificate of Personal Effectiveness


Oastler’s School understands the importance of Personal Growth and the skills required to allow young people to be given the best opportunities to develop and demonstrate a wide range of personal skills. CoPE challenges learners to explore a range of challenges which provides opportunities for them to broaden their experience and manage their learning in a variety of real life contexts. The intention for CoPE is to teach Post 16 to understand, take responsibility for and learn from a wide range of activities, rather than simply experience them.


Leaners will work through selected modules so they can gain a broad understanding of Personal Effectiveness and learn to develop specific skills alongside the module to help them succeed in a variety of sectors.


  • Communication
  • Citizenship and Community
  • Sport and Leisure
  • Independent Living
  • The Environment
  • Vocational Preparation
  • Health and fitness
  • Work-Related Learning and Enterprise
  • Science and Technology
  • International Links
  • Expressive Arts
  • Beliefs and Values


  • Introduction to Working with Others
  • Introduction to Improving Own Learning and Performance
  • Introduction to Problem Solving
  • Planning and carrying out a piece of Research
  • Communicating through discussion
  • Planning and giving an Oral Presentation

A focus of the Post 16 is to provide every learner the opportunity to achieve as many qualifications as possible. This year we are introducing CoPE as an accredited course which means over 2 years the students will have an additional qualification.


The Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) is a nationally recognised qualification available at Levels 1, 2 and 3. The qualification offers imaginative ways of accrediting young people's activities. It promotes, and allows learners with a wide range of personal qualities, abilities and achievements, as well as introducing them to new activities and challenges.
