Careers Guidance

Year 11 college applications must be complete and sent by February half term.

If any support is needed please see or contact Mrs Dalowsky or your form tutor. The aim of Careers Education at Winterton Community Academy is to provide pupils with the information and skills to choose the best possible route for themselves when they leave.

September – December: Visiting speakers will attend Year 11 PSHE lessons/Assemblies to give students as much information as possible. Local colleges will be sending representatives who can offer some course advice. Training and employment options will also be presented to pupils. Students can expect to receive some impartial careers advice through school. 

September – December: Students will visit local colleges to gain an insight into the provision available. There will also be workshops in school sharing further advice post 16. All students in year 11 will have 1:1 careers advice from a post 16 provider.

October – Careers Fair

December: Students will spend time writing personal statements during tutorial time for the application process for post 16 education.

January – February: The application process for post 16 education is completed.

March / April: – Individual college visits if required.

August: Results!

Please ask your form tutor / Mrs Dalowsky for advice about your options. It is your choice, and so you need to be informed about what is out there!

Look out for Careers preparation sessions in tutorial.
