Our close involvement with the world of industry and our dedicated Post 16 careers advisor enables us to support every young person to achieve their potential, ensuring that upon leaving us you are well prepared for the challenges of employment.
Within Year 12 you will take part in Barclays Life Skills sessions which is a nationally recognised programme created in response to identified skills gaps. The sessions are led by expert facilitators and involve preparation activities for the world of work such as interview role play, CV writing and personality profiling. In addition you will benefit from an extensive range of external speakers in order to expand your knowledge of available opportunities beyond 6th form. The year concludes with an opportunity to complete work experience placements at international companies such as AT&T and Costa or more locally, Halfords, Thursfields Legal and The Alexander Hospital.
As we proceed into Year 13 we continue to help you to navigate your Post 18 options by assisting you in the completion of the personal statements required for University applications, Higher Level Apprenticeships or employment. This process is supported by extensive use of our Unifrog software which allows you to reflect on your personal competencies and research the individual entrance requirements for all educational courses. We are rightly proud of the level of support we offer and have an outstanding record that indicates all of our students leave to positive destinations.
