Towards the end of Year 12, the different routes available to our students are discussed. Those who are aiming to attend university start the process by learning how the UCAS application process takes place and the timeline for applications.
As students move into Year 13, the UCAS application process is carefully monitored, individual references prepared for all students and arrangements made for students who require interview experience made to support their applications.
Sessions on finance and money management take place, and an information evening for parents is arranged to update on such matters.
For those who are seeking employment or an apprenticeship following Sixth Form, individual appointments are arranged with Giselle Douglas (G.Douglas@alleynes.staffs.sch.uk), the school’s independent Careers Advisor to discuss the options available and provide support and action plans during the application process.
As part of the school’s Sixth Form enrichment curriculum, all Year 12 students are encouraged to arrange and attend one week of work experience. This provides an opportunity to enhance applications and CVs for university or employment and provides a valuable opportunity to experience the expectations for employment.
