EXAM success is always something to celebrate and this group of autistic students were no exception after passing a range of BTECs.
Twelve students from LVS Oxford, in Begbroke, received 30 qualifications across six subjects, giving some students a stepping stone towards sitting a range of GCSEs or Level 2 BTECs.
LVS Oxford, which opened in September 2014, offers six BTEC qualifications for young people with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum.
The options include vocational studies, land based studies, Jamie Oliver home cooking skills, sport & leisure, health and social care and business administration.
Head of School at LVS Oxford Louisa Allison-Bergin said: “LVS Oxford gives students with autism the skills they need to live independently as adults. We achieve this through a broad range of academic options, and are delighted that our learners have done so well and thrived during their BTEC courses.
“Our additional commitment to work experience – allowing them to gain experience in careers they are interested in and develop their CVs – and growing their confidence in dealing with social situations, all combines to ensure our learners go on to have bright futures”.
A number of students have combined their studies with work experience placements, such as Dominic and Peter taking on customer-facing roles at Blenheim Palace and Ben working at a gym.
Later in August LVS Oxford will receive its second GCSE results.
