Careers Guidance and Post 16

Transition New Park continues to offer an extensive guidance package for year 8-11 students, with particular focus on the transition from year 11 to Post 16 Provision. All students have access to a Careers Guidance Officer who is available one day a week. During year 11, the officer attends the reviews and assists with applications, interviews, CV writing, arrangements of visits to Colleges and Training Providers, sharing clear pathways for our students with the young people, their parents/carers and school staff, supported by school’s own counsellor who also has dedicated time for Post 16 Support. During the autumn term, sometime is also spent on the previous year 11s who may have stumbled across the first barriers, and regular exchange takes place between all parties, including parents, college and training providers to ensure the initially identified provision is still meeting the young person’s needs. Although there was a slight increase in the percentage of last year’s school leavers not meeting the duty to participate – 16.7% as opposed to 15% last year – it still shows improvement from the 24% and 22.7% from 2014 and 2015 respectively
