Provider Access Policy:
This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
Post 16 Options
A good place to start planning your post 16 options is to think of these three questions:
1. Where am I now? (What qualifications, skills, and interests do I have?)
2. Where do I want to get to? (What would I like to be doing in 5 years time – job, house, children?)
3. How will I get there? (What course or training is likely to get you where you want to go?)
Of course, at the age of 16, young people don’t necessarily know the answer to all these questions, but now is the time to start exploring information about careers, jobs and courses.
After GCSEs there are different pathways to choose from and making the decision between these pathways needs careful thought;
