No specific equipment is required.
The public services team operate a flexible open-door policy for additional support. The support for sixth form students can be working with staff at lunch times, during their private student sessions or equally where necessary the sixth former can be directed to attend intervention sessions by Mr Willars, Head of Vocational and Careers Education.
In the sixth form students are required to attend and complete a range of team activities such as assisting in the running of the careers fair and completing an expedition. Students are also encouraged to use their private study time to complete work placements as these are key to develop understanding and to include as evidence in future applications for higher/further study and employment.
