Careers - IAG
In order that our students can make informed choices about the route they choose to take Post 16 we offer the following guidance and advice:
The library holds a wide selection of college prospectuses and career option information this literature is constantly updated and available for students to take home as they please!
School Careers Advisor
Michelle Seaman is in school every Tuesday and Thursday holding Post 16 Option advice one-to-one sessions to all year 11 students. Students may make an appointment to see Michelle by speaking to Mrs Powell in the library. All students will be offered appointment-students can also ‘drop-in’ to speak to Michelle during break and lunchtime on these days. Michelle Seaman attends year 11 parents’ evenings offering advice and information to both students and parent/carers.
Post 16 Day
This is held in school every October during the school day. Representatives from local colleges and Career providers visit Cove School offering advice and guidance on the various courses available ranging from A Levels, Btech courses and apprenticeships. Students will have time to speak to a wide range of Post 16 providers, gather information on courses, college life and the various routes available to them Post 16.
This is an exciting time for students, however with the wide range of choices available it is important that students do as much research into the courses they intend to apply for, students should apply to more than one Post 16 provider in order to keep their options open until they receive their GCSE results in August.
Students should attend College Open Events-a timetable of which can be collected from the library, alternatively students can log onto the individual college websites to gather this information directly. The links are below!
We aim to offer all students as much guidance and advice to assist them in making informed decisions.
Students can speak to their tutor, Head of House and Michelle Seaman (careers advisor) anytime they need to during their chosen Post 16 application processes.
College application forms should be submitted directly to the students chosen college, the college will then contact the school for a reference, once the school has provided a reference students will be invited into college to attend an interview.
Please note... that Farnborough 6th College interviews are held in Cove School during January.
Students will be given advice and guidance on interview preparation and technique prior to their interview.
