Transition Post 16

The college offers a range of Information, Advice and Guidance to help students make well-informed realistic decisions about their future.
The law states that everyone has to stay in learning until at least their 18th birthday.
Students can choose from:

  • a full time course (called a study programme) at a college or sixth form
  • learning while they work (called work based learning) which includes apprenticeships, traineeships and study programmes that are based with training providers rather than at college or sixth form.

They can get a job, become a volunteer or start their own business – as long as they are also studying for a recognised qualification.
