The students have Careers lessons in school and this gives them the opportunity to look at college courses and jobs and start thinking about their future.
We have student attending local colleges on a 14-16 programme. Some students, just having the experience makes it easier for the transition into college after year 11. The students are able to access courses like Motor Vehicle, Catering, Hair and Beauty and Construction. Some courses are taster sessions and some are accredited courses where they gain a small qualification. It gives the students the confidence to interact with other young people as well as adults.
The students also visit various colleges for taster days and for private tours. We also take the students to Careers fairs to speak with Colleges and various Companies.
