General Religious Education at John F Kennedy Catholic School
In the Sixth Form, you will study a General RE course in order to gain a Level 2 (Year 12) & Level 3 (Year 13) qualification accredited by the National Open College Network. Each student that successfully passes the course will receive an NOCN Certificate. This is a nationally recognised qualification which demonstrates that students have successfully completed a course in Religious & Moral Education. To pass the course you need to attend regularly, participate in discussion and group work and complete the written elements of the course handbooks.
Why do we have General RE? There are a huge number of benefits to the study of this course: It helps to further develop key skills; it provides opportunities for spiritual development. It provides the opportunity to enjoy learning without the stress of it leading to an exam, it also has the potential to add a distinctive element to your UCAS application. It will make your application stand out as a candidate offering more than the standard number of qualifications. Further to this, the study of RE is a legal expectation placed upon all schools. As a Catholic school, this is an expectation which we take seriously and one which students make a committment to when choosing the Sixth Form at JFK.
