YEAR 11 UPDATE

Published 10/04/2020

Careers and guidance KS4

Due to the unprecedented situation that we are all in, we felt that it was important that pupils both current and leavers, had access to information regarding careers, work experience, apprenticeship availability and post 16 guidance.

Year 11 Advice- We advise that you make direct contact with your sixth form or college providers about your place in September. We also advise that you continue checking Sheffield Progress and your emails with any updates or offers from sixth forms and colleges.

We have separated these into two sections, those that are likely to be beneficial to Y11 and those that are beneficial when in year 10.

Please use these whilst at home. It is important to not only think about your studies, but also where they could potentially lead in the long term.
