Year 11 Careers

Year 11 Students

The College or 6th form that you have applied to for September will be in touch with you about your place in September. 

Please remember to check your e-mails for any updates as well as websites.   If you have not yet had an interview, it may be conducted over the telephone but your College/6th form will let you know. 

If you have not applied yet, you need to do so as soon as possible.  You can do this online – see links below for local institutions.  If you need any help, or have a question, please e-mail Miss Willshire cwillshire@tas-tkat.org or use the TAS website https://www.tas-tkat.org/990/students-1

Post-16 Providers will be looking at transition work this half-term to ensure you can prepare for your 2020-21 course.

Having discussed this with Chichester College, more information, will be provided shortly. Our academy trust, TKAT, is working with our sixth form providers to develop bridging units for A levels.

Most exam boards have a section linking GCSE to A level, e.g. AQA Biology

https://www.aqa.org.uk/resources/science/as-and-a-level/biology-7401-7402/teach/gcse-to-a-level-progression

The exam boards are the same for GCSE. Look for the qualification section and follow the links

https://www.aqa.org.uk/

https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/home.html

https://www.ocr.org.uk/

BTECs/NVQs and other vocational qualifications will have guidelines associated with  the course. Checking the provider’s website would be the best place to start.

The UCAS further education site https://www.ucas.com/further-education is really useful to find out where courses are run locally.

If you are considering an apprenticeship, whilst communication may be limited, at present, please try https://amazingapprenticeships.com/vacancies/ and /or https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship

Further to the information from Chichester College last week, here is some useful information to support your next steps from the Portsmouth and Highbury colleges. 

There is also some great stuff at https://www.gcsepod.com/free-resources/getting-ready-for-ks5/ for A levels. 

Our Getting Ahead work is now live on our website and can be accessed here - 

https://www.hsdc.ac.uk/getting-ahead/.

The Flying Start initiative is a collaboration between Portsmouth City Council, SUN, Portsmouth College and Highbury College. The Flying Start website provides Year 11 students and their parents with useful information relating to post-16 progression. The website can be accessed here - https://www.sunoutreach.org/resource-category/flying-start-portsmouth/. Whilst this initiative is initially targeted at students living in the Portsmouth area, it can be accessed by all Year 11 students, regardless of their postal address and school.
