Year 10 students spend ½ a day a week at College on a School Links Course. This year, Dover College are providing the one year course for our students. They will have the opportunity to complete a b’ tech in car mechanics, as an introduction to college.
Students are taken to college in school vehicles and supported by school staff throughout the time at college in Year 10.
In Year 11, students will have the opportunity to choose a college course to study in more detail and spend 1 – 2 days a week at college. It is more likely that these courses will be arranged at a college local to where students live.
School will organise college placements and taxi transport where necessary. Students will be encouraged to attend with only peripheral school supervision.
It is then hoped that students will continue to study at college or courses that have interested them post 16, i.e. after leaving school.
