Brookvale Groby Learning Campus: Provider Access Policy

Introduction
As a campus whose vision statement is based on the principle of ‘Valuing Everyone, Achieving Excellence’ outstanding careers advice is central to our philosophy.  As a school we believe in supporting and challenging every student to achieve their best and to ensure that no student knowingly under achieves. With these principles in mind, our aim is to ensure that every student has the highest quality advice and guidance on their future pathways and how to achieve their ambitions.

This policy statement sets out the campus’ arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the campus for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the campus’ legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

  • To find out about technical educational qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point;
  • To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through option events , assemblies and group discussions and taster events;
  • To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.
