Training providers’ and employers’ access

This section includes the school’s arrangements for managing the access of training providers to students 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.

Student entitlement
All students in years 7-13 are entitled to:

  • find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeship opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point;
  • hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events;
  •  understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

Opportunities for access for training providers and employers
A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, offer providers and employers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and /or their parents / carers:

  • Dedicated Parent’s evenings
  • Year 9 Options evenings
  • Careers Fair
  • Assemblies
  • Apprenticeship workshops
  • Social Science lessons

Please speak to our Careers Leader to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.

Premises and facilities
The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider or employer and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Leader or a member of their team.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature at the Careers Resource Centre, which is managed by the school’s Careers Adviser. The Resource Centre is available to all students at all times.
