What is "post 16 enhancement"?

    Once of the training providers which I've applied to says that students will become a qualified teacher of pupils aged between 11 and 16 (with post-16 enhancement).

    Please would anyone be able to give me their best guess of what post 16 enhancement means?

    Another training provider offers a 11-18 PGCE so I'm guessing it's going to be a little bit different from that? Perhaps some time in A-level but not as much? o_O

    Many Thanks

    You'll probably have a 2 week period (or so) where you spend time in a sixth form at a secondary school or sixth form college, just so you can appreciate what goes on at AS/A level, and how it's different to KS3/4.

    We had an enhancement period where you could choose something that interested you and do it - as we were an 11-18 course I chose SEN and EAL, and spent 2 weeks in an inclusion unit at the end of the course.
