Encouraging excellence, valuing people

Post 16 Transition

South Charnwood High School offers a range of information, advice and guidance to help students make well-informed realistic decisions about their future.


As the law states that everyone must stay in learning until at least their 18th birthday, pupils have the following options:


  • A full time course, (a study programme) at a college or sixth form
  • Learning while they work (work based learning) which includes apprenticeships, traineeships and study programmes that are based with training providers rather than at a college or sixth form
  • They can get a job, become a volunteer or start their own business so long as they are also studying for a recognised qualification.
