Next steps when leaving school

by Gemma Melling

If you’re currently due to be sitting your GCSEs and not sure what you want to do when you leave school, why not go along to one of the open evenings that have been arranged by local colleges in the area?

Open evenings are a great opportunity for you to take a look around the college, find out more information about the wide range of school leaver, adult and higher education courses and subject areas on offer.

There’s also staff on hand to provide you with you information about the admissions process, students are on hand to share their experiences and the subjects that are on offer at the Sixth Form College as well as transport arrangements.
