As soon as you start at Ringmer Sixth Form the process for ‘moving on’ will also commence. You will have access to a range of careers support. In year 12 you will have the opportunity to attend a Higher Education Fair to collect various prospectuses and meet with representatives from higher education establishments. Once you have identified your choices your offer grades will be factored into the college target setting and teaching staff will use these to help track your progress. On results day in Year 13 staff will be available to support you in accepting your final place or finding a place through clearing. Examples of courses Ringmer Sixth Form students have moved on to study include: Music Production, Nursing and English courses at university.
At Ringmer Sixth Form we encourage students to continue in education beyond the Sixth Form in order to realise their full potential. We will provide advice and guidance as to the costs of continuing in education given the current economic climate and recent announcements regarding student funding.
However, not all students will move on to higher education and Ringmer students in the past have progressed into employment, apprenticeships or further education. You will have access to a Connexions careers advisor for weekly drop-ins where jobs with training or apprenticeship opportunities in the local area will be highlighted. Your mentor may also arrange a personal appointment for you as we aim to support you in making the right choice moving on from the Sixth Form.
