  • Premises and Facilities

    The school will make the main hall, sports hall, classrooms or private meetings rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations.  This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with The Careers Leader or a member of the Careers Team, The Head of Year or another relevant member of staff.

     

    Providers are invited to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature with the school for display, reference and in some cases sufficient supplies for pupils to retain a copy, in the School Library which is managed by the School Librarian.
