Tonight we will be hosting a Post-16 Advice Evening in the Drama Hall from 4:30-6:00pm. This event is directly aimed at supporting our Year 11 students in making decisions about their next educational step after their time at The Dean Academy. This will be an opportunity for students, parents and carers to speak directly with a range of local providers who can give information about course choices, apprenticeships, applications and much more. Our currently confirmed attendees are as follows:
- Gloucestershire College (GlosCol) – including a representative from the Advice and Guidance team, for impartial advice, a representative for the Apprenticeship team.
- Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre – including Mr Johnathan Lane, Director of Sixth Form & Associate Assistant Headteacher
- Hartpury College
- Forest Sports Education
- Delphi Engineering Systems – CANCELLED
- High School for Girls, Gloucester
- The Armed Forces – including the Army and Navy (including The Royal Marines)
- Adviza – Careers Advice and Support (www.adviza.org.uk)
- The Dean Academy Careers Team – including how and where to access information and support in-school
With application deadlines on the horizon, and Open Days passing, we hope that this event will provide a useful opportunity for you to get your questions answered in a more intimate setting than an Open Event might provide. It is being run exclusively for students, parents and carers from The Dean Academy.
If you are concerned about the event clashing with Chepstow School Open Evening, we would note that their event begins at 6:00 and ours at 4:30. Our hope is that you might be able to visit us and follow on to Chepstow school from here in time for their later start.
We very much look forward to welcoming you tonight!
