The Jigsaw Programme will help me make this high-profile across the school, support all the tutors to deliver it well, and give young people their entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum to equip them for life. Thank you. It has been a pleasure being part of the pilot project.”

Jigsaw PSHE, 11-16, is endorsed by the NCFE (National Awarding Organisation) as the teaching programme aligned to and supporting the delivery of learning that meets all the requirements for the Levels 1 and 2 Awards for RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education).
Jigsaw teaching units are sequenced in the same order as the Award Learning Outcomes, and each Puzzle (unit) in Jigsaw covers all the content required for each Award.
The full assessment process in Jigsaw with attainment descriptors for each unit of work and a summative assessment ‘workbook’ in lesson 6 of each Puzzle (unit) enable the straightforward monitoring and recording of learning and progress and the workbooks evidence all the Learning Outcomes and Portfolio Requirements for the NCFE RSHE Awards.
Jigsaw is delighted to work with the NCFE Team and to offer the opportunity to both students and schools to gain recognition for their RSHE/Health and Well-being work.
