The College offers a range of information, advice and guidance to help students make well-informed and realistic decisions about their future. The law states that everyone has to stay in education or training until their 18th birthday. In addition, students who do not achieve a Grade 4 in Maths or English Language are required to re-take the course at college.

Students are given information about the range of choices available to them which include:

• A full-time course(This might involve A levels or a BTEC, or a combination of both) or
• An apprenticeship or traineeship.

We work closely with all post-16 providers in Leicester and Leicestershire to ensure students are aware of the range of options available to them, and the entry requirements for each course and provider.  Positive Steps@16 is the on-line application system, which all students will use to apply for at least 2 post-16 places during Year 11.


The timetable for the application process is as follows:
