Key stage 5/Post-16

Key stage 5/Post-16 is our last opportunity to ensure that students have real competence in the skills and strategies they’ve been developing throughout their PSHE education — and to extend the knowledge and understanding that they need to equip them for independent living and the next stage in their education or career.


Start with our KS5 Programme Builder and Planning Tool, then browse our KS5/post-16 resources for all topics, from physical health to mental health, Relationships and Sex Education to community and responsibility.
