The Prince’s Trust Diploma in Personal Development and Employability Skills (PDE) recognises a breadth of personal skills, qualities and attitudes required by employers across a range of sectors. In order to allow for the development of such skills, qualities and attitudes, we have mapped most of the modules to be evidenced alongside the help of employers who will engage with our students to give them firsthand experience. Not only will this help to bring the modules to life and place tasks into real working situations but will also allow for students core subject knowledge to be applied.
Below is a diagram that shows examples of how core subjects, WBL and the PDE all complement and support one another.
|PDE Module||Supported by Employer’s WBL experience||Core Subject Knowledge Required|
|Digital Skills||Angel Solutions- Creating marketing materials for a campaign for one of our partners.||English – Literacy|
|Managing Money||My BNK – Create a spreadsheet showing the income, outgoings and profits of a business over a month.||Maths|
|Preparing for a Healthy Lifestyle||Aintree Hospital – How a poor choice in lifestyle can impact on health||Science|
By the end of the course, students will have acquired a portfolio which will evidence the skills they have developed and how they have applied them. In addition, students will have accumulated over the two years a vast amount of experience engaging with different employers from diverse sectors. Students will leave LEEP with the skills and capabilities to thrive in the modern complex world of work.
