Provider Access Policy Statement

Provider Access Policy Statement

Introduction

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangement for managing the access of providers to our young people for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligation under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Pupil Entitlement

All pupils in years 8-11 are entitled:

  • To find out about technical education qualification and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point.
  • To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships- through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events.
  • To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses

Management of Provider Access Requests

Procedure:

A provider wishing to request access should contact Temi Ismail, Assistant Headteacher and Careers Programme Lead, Tel: 02086462620; Email: tismail@melbury.merton.sch.uk

Premises and Facilities

The school will make the main hall, classrooms, senior common room or meeting spaces available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Leader.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant courses literature with Temi Ismail, Careers Lead. This will be made available to our young people and their families as appropriate.
