This policy statement sets out the academy’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
Management of provider access requests
Opportunities for access
Our provision includes various opportunities for students to access a range of events. These are mainly integrated into the schools careers programme and curriculum. These events are therefore delivered internally, with contribution from external providers where appropriate.
A provider wishing to request access should contact 01254 223000
Local providers are invited to key relevant events. In addition, external providers interested in coming into the academy should speak to Mr Miele, our named Careers Leader to identify the most suitable opportunity.
The academy policy on safeguarding sets out the academy’s approach to allowing providers into school as visitors to talk to our students.
Once visits have been agreed, the academy will provide appropriate rooming to facilitate the visit, along with any equipment requested by the provider, where it is available.
Providers are welcome to provide a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature that will be made available to students in the careers area of the Learning Resource centre.
