Pathways to Post 16 Learning

Pathways to Post 16 Learning - Creating a seamless transition that delivers positive futures

This course looks in detail at how learners who are coming to the end of year 11 can prepare for key stage 5 and beyond and build clear pathways for their future. The need for highly interactive information advice and guidance (IAG) as to the next steps they will take is essential. There is now a statutory obligation for all schools to deliver comprehensive Careers Guidance. However, there is also the need to take account of well-being and self-esteem. There is a need to create a culture where the partnership between those who deliver post 16 education and those in schools can work together to create a seamless transition that does not tread on the aspirations of the learner. This is true whether the student is moving into a school's sixth form or going to a local college or other establishment.

The course will consist of 5 sections:-

  • A review of the statutory obligations that both schools and post 16 establishments have tp provide Careers Guidance and IAG
  • An in-depth focus on how to prepare learners for post 16 education after their exams or assessments are completed
  • An opportunity to look at ways to develop robust partnerships with those who deliver post 16 education that will ensure learners have the right start to their post 16 experience
  • Defining the differences between learning in key stage 4 and key stage 5. What are the skills learners build as a result of their key stage 4 experience and how can post 16 providers build on and enhance these skill
  • Planning a strategy for transition from key stage 4 into 5 that ensures learners have the induction they need to continue to learn, are ambitious for their own future and continue to be motivated to achieve success at the end of this stage

Who is this course for?

Heads of Sixth Form who want to make sure that all those entering key stage 5 have the induction they need to look forward to positive futures and high quality learning experiences. Heads of Year 11 who can support learners to make the right choices and be prepared for the similarities and differences they will encounter as part of moving into sixth form life. Thos with responsibility for inducting learners into college or other post 16 provision.
