Two Bridges School is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance (CEIAG) for all students in Years 10-11, and targeted transition support to enable our students to be successful as they transition between phases of education and adulthood. The CEIAG programme has been developed around the GATSBY Benchmarks, and comprises activities designed to help our students to make decisions and plan their careers both in school, and after they leave. These activities include:
To support our students, we work closely with external agencies including The Education People, The Careers and Enterprise Company, The Department of Work and Pensions, and Kent Training and Apprenticeships. This enables us to provide bespoke support around students? choices and to support our students to access apprenticeships and work. Young people and their parents can find information about the courses available within local colleges and sixth forms from:
Information about SEN provision in college can be found under the ?College Life? tab on providers? websites. For sixth forms this information can be found under the ?Parents? tab on providers? websites. Young people with EHCPs are also eligible for supported internships and assisted apprenticeships, information on these can be found at:
Two Bridges School is invested in supporting young people to be successful during their transition to post-16. Our comprehensive transition support programme includes pastoral support at enrolment days, arranging ALS support, preparing financial/timetable support, and attending/supporting at meetings with students and college staff. Further to this we establish working relationships with course tutors, liaising with and supporting college staff as appropriate and sharing support strategies and helpful information to enable our students to be successful. There are occasions where an alternative provision or bespoke programme is needed to support a young person to be successful, for this we work with external agencies such as The Education People, CXK, RUNWAY Training, and The Careers and Enterprise Company. During the first year of transition, we are available to support our students with job searches, interviews, and subsequent transitions between training providers. Similar support is also provided to students from previous cohorts as required.
