Provider Access Policy
This policy statement sets out our arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the Academy for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
The full pupil entitlement can be found in our Careers, Policy but includes the following for all pupils in years 7-13:
- how to find out about technical education qualifications 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
- 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
- understanding how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses
Management of provider access requests
A provider wishing to request access should contact our Careers Lead, Mr Carl Papworth, Assistant Principal on 0208 304 4926 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for access
Both the Academy and Harris Sixth Form offer a number of events, integrated into the Academy Careers Programme, where students will learn about the alternative pathways ahead of them and have opportunities to meet with providers throughout each Key Stage.
Premises & Facilities
The Academy will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The Academy 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 or a member of their team.
Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature at the Careers Resource Centre, which is managed by the Harris Federation Careers Advisor. The Resource Centre is available to all students at lunch and break times.
