Year 11 applications for post-16 progression
Year 11 is an exciting time for any student and will be the time for making important decisions about the future! The Careers Education programme at Tomlinscote prepares students for all possible post-16 pathways though a number of in-school events.
The autumn term of Year 11 is particularly important as students start to think about their options for post-16. As you will be aware, the government requires all young people to be in an element of education, employment or training until they are 18 years old. Young people nowadays have a real range of options for post-16 and it is really important that Year 11s keep their options open and explore the variety of pathways out there in order to make an informed choice regarding their next steps.
The Year 11 autumn term assembly rota enables us to welcome in a real range of differing local post-16 providers to inform our students of their curriculum offer. These cover all post-16 pathways including Colleges/Sixth Forms, Apprenticeships and Technical training routes. Local post-16 providers are also in attendance at various in-school and evening information events throughout Years 10 and 11 to help inform families of next steps and the options available. The Autumn Two Year 11 PSHE module focuses on post-16 progression pathways and preparing our students for life beyond Tomlinscote.
Please see the information below regarding the dates of all local post-16 providers and information regarding their open events and information evenings. Furthermore, please see the link below to a video presentation from Farnborough Sixth Form College for Year 11 families ahead of making their applications for September 2024. Please note- applications open on Monday 23rd October and close on Monday 6th November at 4.00 p.m.
