Introduction

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Student entitlement

All students in Years 7-13 are entitled:

  • To find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point.
  • To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events.
  • To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

Management of provider access requests

A provider wishing to request access should contact Andrea George-Samuels, Assistant Principal, on 01603 628181 ext. 206; email andreageorge-samuels@inspirationtrust.org

Premises and facilities

The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity.

The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the careers leader or a member of their team.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature at the Careers Resource Centre.

Monitoring and review

For all students, individual provision and progress is recorded and tracked across school through student feedback, data collection, and destination outcomes. All external providers used measure the outcomes and success of specific provisions delivered. This is then evaluated and reviewed by the school (next review date September 2019) to ensure the optimum impact of the offer available to students.
