More Able and Talented Pupils

Pupils who are More Able and Talented (MAT) are recognised at YTC. These pupils have been identified through assessment  and teacher observation of their skills. Pupils are usually identified as being MAT if they achieve Connecting Steps Assessment at Progression Step 2 and above. Following identification, MAT pupils in each class are planned for, which ensures that each individual  achieves excellent progression in the areas of learning. Where there are pupils in the 16-19 department who are MAT,  there will be particular emphasis  on a pupil's vocational interests and extension of accreditation/ work experience. Pupils at KS5 who are MAT will have accreditations in Essential Skills Wales for Literacy, Numeracy.
