Please then check it fully and ensure you, your parents/ carers and current school learning providers have completed all sections and the form before you post or email the form to your chosen post 16 provider.
What this prospectus covers and what it does not:
This prospectus contains information about the huge range of choices that are available to you after Year 11. Because it covers such a wide range it cannot attempt to include detailed information about each course. If you want more information about a course simply go to the individual providers’ own websites, email or ring them to ask them for a copy of their prospectuses. Open Days are the best way to find out more and details of these can be found on the back pages of the prospectus.
For career advice and support, please speak to a Careers Adviser in your school or learning establishment. For advice via telephone, email or secure web chat, you can also contact the National Careers Service. Visit: https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk or ring 0800 100 900.
