Cape Cornwall School Provider Access Statement

Introduction

This policy statement sets out Cape Cornwall School’s arrangements for managing the access of post-16 providers to all year groups, to enable students to make fully informed rational education and career pathway decisions.

We believe in building strong relationships with: local schools with a sixth form; further education and sixth form colleges; apprenticeship providers; universities; independent training advisors and employers.  Our careers programme includes a large number of opportunities for external providers to talk to and interact with students and their parents, ensuring they are aware of vocational and technical pathways and opportunities as well as academic ones. 

Continuing Professional Development is used to ensure careers advisers, tutors and other members of the pastoral team are up-to-date in their knowledge of the full range of post-16 opportunities available to students.

Provider Access Requests

Providers wishing to request access should contact Miss K Watkinson, Careers Leader

or email  watkinsonk@cape.cornwall.sch.uk

Opportunities for Access:

All providers are welcome to contact us to discuss how they would like to support and contribute to careers provision for our students. They may like to get involved in activities and events, such as: careers fairs, assemblies, careers information evenings, ‘I Love My Job’ talks, employer speed networking, mock interviews and curriculum subject events.

Please use the Careers Overview link that is also on our home careers page, to access our full careers programme, that identifies all careers events, activities and learning opportunities for each year group.

Any provider taking part in an existing careers event/activity or a new one will be supported by our teaching staff throughout their visit and not left unattended.  We will discuss space requirements with providers and make available appropriate IT and other resources to support presentations.

Providers are welcome to leave copies of their prospectus or course literature and we will distribute them to appropriate students and make them available in our Careers Library. We can promote and distribute details of careers and apprenticeship literature and vacancies to all relevant students and parents through direct email, parent-mail or promotion in our weekly newsletter.
