As well as Careers lessons in the Lower Sixth, the Careers section in the Library and Sixth Form Centre offers a wealth of information and tutors see students regularly to discuss decisions and intentions through the development of an Individual Learning Plan. Students visit the UCAS annual Higher Education Conference held at Lincoln University. Students also have the opportunity to take part in the Next Steps for Study programme run by Bishop Grosseteste University, designed to prepare students for university life. Most students undertake University Open Day visits and there are opportunities to take up work experience and work-shadowing opportunities as they arise. All students have the opportunity of a mock interview early in Upper Sixth.
Tutorial time is an important channel for the support offered by form tutors. As well as day to day advice and help, tutors help students to maintain and develop their Individual Learning Plan, as well as monitoring academic progress. Internal assessments are undertaken termly and reports yearly. In the Upper Sixth, students are assigned to academic tutors who assist with UCAS applications and career intentions at a purely individual level. This support is available even after A level results are known.
