Year 11 Post 16 Application & Personal Guidance
The success of our programme is reflected in the small number of NEETS (not in education, employment or training) that the college has each year. This is a good indicator that pupils have chosen correctly for Post 16 education, and therefore have had the right guidance process. Pupils are asked to complete the Post 16 intention section on Unifrog so they are clear about their plans for Post 16.
Year 11 Destinations - 2020 Cohort
Applying for Post 16 - Information for Parents
It is hoped that all Year 11 pupils have a Plan A and Plan B for Post 16 education. We aim for our Year 11 pupils to have applied for sixth form, college or an apprenticeship by the end of February. Please view the information leaflet HERE.
Applying to Cromwell
Pupils need to complete this application form and hand in to the Careers Office by Friday 18 December 2020. All pupils will be interviewed by the Sixth Form team in January 2021.
Applying to other Colleges / Sixth Forms
Pupils need to create online accounts when applying for colleges. It is advised that they use a personal email address.
Once they have applied to a college, they will need to show their Form Tutor evidence of their application.
All pupils will have a written school reference. References will be uploaded to pupils Unifrog locker to ensure they have access to it when needed.

Applying for an Apprenticeship
It is advised that pupils have applied for a full-time college course first. Colleges can then change their full-time course to the apprenticeship. In the current climate, it is advised to contact companies directly in February / March, as this is when apprenticeships are normally advertised for a September start. This link will help with the application process. Pupils need to search for the following levels depending on GCSEs:
- Traineeship - Level 1 or Level 2 (equivalent to GCSEs or below). Lasting a maximum of 6 months, they are unpaid but you gain skills and qualifications.
- Intermediate - Level 2 (equivalent to 5 GCSEs)
- Advanced - Level 3 (equivalent to 2 A-Levels)
