Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance plays an important role in our student's life at Sixth Form. Students are at an important point within their education where they must start to plan for their future and life after Sixth Form.
Pupils have access to timetabled Careers Provision which helps to prepare them for their Post 18 routes forward. Pupils also gain Careers Information on a Cross Curricular basis through Subject Presentations, trips and guest industry speakers.
We host a biennial Careers Convention with a wide range of exhibitors from Further and Higher Education, as well as employers. Students also attend University Open Days and have guest visits from Universities farther afield.
In Year 13, students have the opportunity to engage in the Work Experience programme directly building up experience of the world of work. In Year 14, all students have a Mock Interview and Assessment Centre day, further developing their skills for the world of work.
In the final term of Year 13, parents and students are invited to a Post 18/UCAS Information Evening which sets out the pathways forward and the guidance and support provided. At the start of Year 14, all students receive an individual Careers Guidance Interview, to support them through the process of University Application or alternative pathways forward.
