North Birmingham Academy offer a broad curriculum at Post 16 level, which has a focus on academic and vocational subjects from A and AS Levels to BTEC, diplomas and OCR Nationals. Students are able to combine a selection of these qualifications in order to enhance their chances of academic and employment success, whilst making the most of their individual skills and talents.
NBA sets high standards with our Post 16 courses, working closely with our students to set achievable and personalised goals. In Post 16, students will study subjects in far greater depth, whilst being more responsible for their learning and the direction of their studies. To support this, we offer a structured and understanding environment allowing students to flourish and develop independent learning skills; allowing them to be successful in their chosen route beyond Post 16.
We believe it is important to develop the whole student, ensuring all of our students leave us as responsible, committed and ambitious young people who are a credit to themselves, their families and their communities. All Post 16 students are encouraged to make a positive contribution to Academy life by mentoring the younger students, assisting group tutors and being ambassadors for Academy events.
Whilst we place a great emphasis on vocational and academic achievements, we also encourage students to broaden their experiences to become involved in volunteer work, work experience, job-shadowing and community service. All of which are focussed on cultivating initiative, responsibility, and positive relations with staff, their peers and the local community. The Post 16 gives our students the opportunity to continue to study and achieve in the inclusive and caring environment they have come to value.
