Higher and Further Education Providers
St Thomas More prides itself on ensuring our young people have informed access to the full range of opportunities available to them post 16. Our external Careers Advisor Mrs J Rasmin offers impartial advice to all Year 11 students during their one to one meeting. Any information you would like sharing with students can be sent to the relevant Head of Year or Mrs Rasmin directly.
In addition to the above we also provide a number of opportunities for access to providers. A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents. Please speak to the Careers Lead, Mr S Burns to identify the most suitable opportunity for you. The school policy on safeguarding sets out the school’s approach to allowing providers into school as visitors to talk to our students.
For further information see our policy statement on provider access which can be downloaded here.
