Year 13 Next Steps

We are pleased to launch our next steps support package of resources for our year 13 students who are leaving us to enter the next stage of their lives. This package is designed to support Year 13 students with their preparations for the next steps into either University, apprenticeship, or the world of work.

This new package allows students to work through the sections that are applicable to them which provides the support they need for the next stage of their careers. The package includes skill development sessions and both pastoral and academic support. 

Students will have access to employability and work-related skills to help them develop their knowledge and understanding of the workplace and how to best prepare for it. There are also university preparation activities to help with transition to student life.

The links provided will help students to plan their post 18 options if they are still not sure what to do. They will help them to develop their CV, develop their online brand, and prepare them to build their professional networking.  Students can also discover volunteering and gap year opportunities.

There are a number of links to online learning courses in a multitude of different subjects areas. All students should be encouraged to complete at least one online learning course.

The links can be accessed here :-
