Certificate of Personal Effectiveness


The Certificate of Personal Effectiveness is a vocational course which gives formal recognition for a diverse range of skills, talents and personal interests.

You will be encouraged to develop and demonstrate a range of skills as you plan, organize and carry out individual and group challenges.

By building a unique portfolio you will demonstrate that you are able to manage and improve your own learning and performance; you will show that you can work independently and with others to carry out research, present information and solve problems.

The challenges are loosely based around twelve modules which are:

  • Communication

  • Sport and Leisure
  • Independent Living
  • The Environment
  • Vocational Preparation
  • Health and Fitness
  • Work Related Learning
  • Science and Technology
  • International Links
  • Expressive Arts
  • Beliefs and Values

As you build your portfolio you will work either at Level 1 or Level 2.
