Further and Higher Education

Each pupil will have their own goals and ambitions and will be looking for particular facilities.

Advise your pupils to explore all their options and look at a number of courses available at different colleges and universities before making a decision.This will be time consuming, but encourage them to be patient and communicate the importance of exploring options.

Pupils need to consider:

Entry requirements to courses – a number of courses will look for specific subjects and grades

Curriculum content – look at the subjects covered and the flexibility options

Destination – where is the university/college based?This opens up a huge relocation consideration for the pupil and could incur significant costs , in some cases full course and accommodation costs.

There are helpful sources online for pupils to explore their further and higher education options.
