Post 16 (Sixth Form, College and Apprenticeship) Information

Introduction

At Ormiston Six Villages Academy, we group our core values under the heading ‘Excellence for All’. Whilst we strive for students to achieve their best academically, we also strongly believe that they can only fulfil their potential if they understand themselves, their abilities and are fully aware of the possibilities available to them in the future.

Our students are moving forward into a rapidly changing world of education, careers and opportunities. For Year 11, this is the first time in 5 years that students will have a choice in where they will be learning. For this step in their education, however, students will have more choice — they have the opportunity to make choices about their own learning and the qualifications that go with it. This can influence their options for future education or employment.

We encourage all students, parents and carers to read through the information on this section of our website. Section 1 gives you key information about the work market where we live, what courses are available to students and how to apply once decided. Section 2 provides you with information about open events whilst section 3 gives you direct links to the Sixth Forms, Colleges and Apprenticeship providers in our area.

It is our aim to get each student on the most suitable course by the time they leave us this summer. This is the first important step to achieving that. Students will continue to be supported by all staff during Year 11 in making the best choices.

Section 1: Key Information

Part 1 - The work market in the South East: what jobs can students expect to find if they stay in the area?

Please take 7 minutes of your time to find out what the main areas of employment are where we live, and what the main upcoming areas of employment are. It is important to consider what jobs are available where we live when choosing your Post 16 courses. Do you know if your qualification will lead to a job locally or will you have to move elsewhere in the country to find the job that best matches what you choose to study?

Part 2 - Finding out about Post 16 Courses: what is suitable for you?

Please take 8 minutes of your time to find out about the choices that are going to be available to you once you leave Year 11. This video encourages you to aim high, outlines the types of course available to you and offers you advice on how to find the best fit for you.

Section 2: Post 16 Open Events

This year, many open events are being hosted virtually. Almost all local 6th Forms will be delivering this information online either visa a live presentation or through video content that you can watch in your own time. All colleges have a wealth of online content but are also offering some on-site tours. Be sure to check in on their web-site before attending any on-site event, it is very likely that you will have to book beforehand.

Aim to visit at least two 6th Form websites as well as those of the colleges. Look in particular at the information relating to Level 3 Courses.
