Virtual Post-16 Day

On Thursday 22nd October we are excited to be hosting a virtual post-16 day for all Y11 students.

This day will be the first stage in the post-16 transition process and an opportunity for students to:-


• Directly ask questions to a careers’ advisor
• Write the first draft of their personal statements for college/6th form/apprenticeship applications. These will be set as an assignment on TEAMS and there will be clear instructions and examples that students can use to structure their work
• Watch virtual Open evening/day videos for local colleges and 6th forms
• Write their CV. This will again be set as an assignment with examples of CV’s to support students in writing their own.


All of these opportunities will be available via TEAMS and can be accessed using mobile phone or PC/laptops.

On return to the Academy after half term students will then be in a great position to start applying for their chosen colleges/6th forms/apprenticeships supported by their form tutors. Please be aware we are very early starting the process this year with the deadline for college applications being mid-January 2021.

Should you require any support with using TEAMS please watch the guidance videos on our website or email learningsupport@yewlandsacademy.org


As always thank you for your support and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.


Yours Sincerely

Miss Nikki Bissett
Assistant Principal
