On both entry and throughout their time with us, we listen to our pupils and provide opportunities to build skills for their future both at Post 16 and employment. We find their interests, strengths and abilities and build a package to utilise these for future success. We have formed great partnerships with Beacon East who support the pupils in their career choices whilst offering impartial advice and guidance. Many young people come to us with little or no aspirations and through the careers program we aim to inspire each individual to pursue a onward career.
The vast majority of our pupils are considered to be at high risk of NEET. Every year we work with parents/ carers and pupils to prevent this. The figures below show the ongoing improvement: The percentages below show the pupil who secured a post 16 placement. This info is reviewed annually and next review is due October 2021.
