The Year 11 students and parents were treated to a feast of opportunities to see all the local colleges and universities in one place, here in school last Tuesday October 4th. Thank-you to all parents who showed such interest and enthusiasm by attending. You can see from the photographs and the exit feedback comments how many students were informed of the many and varied range of college courses and local apprenticeships available to them this summer. This along with the College Open Days (also posted on this website) will put them in a strong position to make these important decisions about their next steps in resolving their futures. We start the college application process called UCAS Progress after half term, with plenty of support in classrooms to make an excellent approach. Interviews will then take place after Christmas with colleges usually making conditional offers based on predicted grades. Apprenticeships can be found on the Leicester College website and always on the National Apprenticeship Service Website where your young person can register for vacancies advertised. It is best to start taking an interest in these from Easter onwards.
