Post 16 Inspirational and Aspirational Assembly or Key Note at Careers Fair

We offer assembly talks which cover the wider opportunities available post 16, not only those offered by our colleges but Sixth Forms and Colleges across South London and Surrey. This includes Apprenticeships which many young people are particularly interested to know more about. Our intention is that the talk complements your offer and is tailored to your requirements, so you can dictate the delivery to suit your students’ needs.

College Tours

An independent Career Adviser will talk through post 16 options with a group of your students. The visits can be taken as part of an Open Day or any day during the week to complement your timetable.

Practical Skills for Students

We can offer classes on study skills to encourage students to develop skills for independent learning. This includes the fundamentals of getting started, learning and memory strategies, revision and exam techniques and academic writing and referencing. Additional sessions on interview technique are also available. All sessions will be tailored to your groups’ needs; we work with Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 students and can target either whole year groups, your Gifted & Talented cohort or those most ‘At Risk’ of not achieving their potential.

If you would like to take this programme of support forward, if there are other ways that we can work in partnership to the benefit of your pupils, or if you have any Careers Fairs planned for this academic year please email
