Aspirations

Aspirations at Trinity Sixth Form Academy

Our mission to equip our learners with the necessary knowledge, skills and virtues underpins everything we do at 6th Form.  It also means our students receive the very best academic and pastoral support enabling them to leave 6th Form  ‘life ready’ and prepared for the next step in their development. Many of our students move onto higher education, securing places at some of the UKs most prestigious universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Students choosing apprenticeships or employment have a bespoke support programme, securing them employment at some of the top local businesses.

The careers programme at TSFA aims to support all students onto their next destination, whether that be higher education or employment. The programme provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to be ‘life ready learners’ and achieve in the wider world. We are working to meet all eight of the Gatsby Benchmarks by September 2020, with many of the benchmarks already being achieved.

Overview of Aspirations provision

The careers programme, embedded into the curriculum, is delivered during Personal Development (PD) sessions, with students attending two of these sessions per week.

Over the two years, students have many opportunities to engage with employers and employees via school trips, the Aspirations Fair, subject specific learning and work experience.

Impartial information and guidance about future options covers university, apprenticeships, employment and traineeships. Students also have access to representatives from C&K careers twice a week.

Opportunities that come through are shared with students on a weekly basis via the newsletter. This is also sent to parents and includes links to useful websites and information on how to support your child.

Labour market information is delivered via PD sessions and is also updated on the website regularly.
