All young people must be in some form of education or recognised training until they are 18, and we have a duty as a school to make sure your child is supported to make the right choices.
When a child leaves Heartlands at 16, once they have completed their GCSE’s, they can
- Study full time education at a school or college e.g. A Levels or Vocational Qualifications;
- Start an apprenticeship or Traineeship;
- Be in part time education or training – this must be in addition to employment, self-employment or volunteering for a minimum of 20 hours per week.
How do we support your child to make the right Post 16 choices?
At Heartlands, students have access to a wide range of services to help them make their choices. Each child receives
- A careers interview with our Careers Advisor, and bespoke support depending on need
- Post 16 live talks from local colleges and sixth forms
- Application Support
- Dedicated careers and pathways sessions during SEARCH days
- Apprenticeship sessions
- Careers section in the library
- Unifrog Subscription
- Access to the Post 16 Success Portal
