The Personal Growth & Wellbeing Programme
Our Personal Growth and Wellbeing resource is the basis of the Programme, and is a set of units that students work through in class.
You will need one resource per learner (available as a set of eight workbooks or as an online eight-unit course).
What is the PGW Programme?
Our Personal Growth and Wellbeing (PGW) Programme is designed for secondary school students across the UK, and supports the delivery of BTEC Level 1 and 2 qualifications in Personal Growth and Wellbeing. The PGW Programme is made up of two elements: the resource and the qualification.
It’s easy to come on board – give us a ring or fill in our contact form so that we can get in touch with you. We’ll explain how everything works and answer all your questions.
To achieve the BTEC Level 1 or 2 qualification in Personal Growth and Wellbeing, students must be registered with us.
This allows us to manage verification, accreditation, Internal Quality Assurance and certification responsibilities.

Using the resource
The PGW resource is mapped against both the English and Welsh curricula. In England, the resource covers the entire PSHE and RSE specifications. In Wales, the resource meets all strands of the new Health and Wellbeing AoLE, as well as the PSE and RSE specifications.
The PGW Programme is flexible and can be delivered through allocated PS(H)E time, core subjects (including Maths, Science, and PE), or even as a standalone option choice. The resource is available in two different formats: either as a physical set of workbooks or as an online course.
The resource can be adapted for all learners, and learning outcomes can be evidenced in alternative formats. It is perfect for all students aged 11-16, no matter their background, circumstances or type of educational provision.
The Personal Growth and Wellbeing qualification can be delivered at different levels and sizes. Centres can choose which size and level of qualification they would like to deliver depending on the amount of time they have to complete the qualification and the ability of their learners.
For more information on qualification sizes and GCSE equivalencies, please see our leaflets at the
