Oastlers School Vision Statement for Personal Social Development (PSD)


Oastler’s School understands the importance of Personal Social Development and the skills required to allow young people demonstrate responsibility within their community, providing them with the attributes to become a strong, independent and confident individual.


At Levels 1-2: 8 credits are required for an Award, and 13 for a Certificate. Leaners will work through selected modules so they can gain a broad understanding of Personal Social Development and learn to develop specific skills to help them succeed in a variety of challenges.


  • Community action
  • Healthy living
  • Preparation for work
  • Managing own money
  • Parenting awareness
  • Making the most of leisure time
  • Environmental awareness
  • Food safety in the home and community
  • Healthy eating
  • Your money in the future
  • Identity and cultural diversity
  • Managing social relationships
  • Individual rights and responsibilities

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 PSD as an accredited course which means over 2 years the students will have an additional qualification.


The Personal and Social Development (PSD) qualification offers imaginative ways of supporting young people in:

  • becoming confident individuals who are physically, emotionally and socially healthy
  • being responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society and embrace change
  • managing risk together with their own wellbeing

as well as introducing them to new activities and personal challenges.
