Alternative Edge - PiXL


The Alternative Edge is an Award created by PiXL and designed to broaden pupils horizons in a less formal classroom setting. The PiXL Edge focuses on the 5 Key Attributes of Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication (LORIC).


The Awards have 3 Levels, Apprentice, Graduate and Master. In order to achieve their Apprentice Award pupils must complete 2 challenges from each of the Key Attributes, 10 in total.


These challenges have been designed to enable pupils to engage in Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) as well as in a class base and to take in to accounts their interests and hobbies so that they have the maximum opportunity to engage and complete this Award.
