Post-16

We have a designated Careers Lead and trained form tutors who liaise with Connexions to support our pupils (and their families) when making post-16 choices. As part of our commitment to informing our pupils of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we involve partner businesses in work placement as well as experience opportunities. Many of our pupils have potential to access courses in mainstream college with the right support in key-stage 4 and 5. We also work closely with local colleges and training providers to provide supported transitions post-16. Our pupils have access to: business breakfasts, work experience visits, Connexions sessions, supported Logo-on-move-on sessions; and our annual Futures Event.

Northcott School is currently working with Careers and Enterprise Company to review the use of the Gatsby Benchmarks as a guide to further develop our careers and information guidance programme.

In the first instance, any comments should be directed to our Careers Lead Lynsey Mowforth c/o admin@northcottschool.org.uk
