It also offers discounts to JD Sports, cinemas and some local arts activities and football matches. It costs £10 for a one-off registration fee. Go to www.ourpass.co.uk to download a form and find out more.
Colleges – September 2020
You should have now received confirmed offers from colleges for September 2020, and over the summer you need to be checking that you have received details about enrolment, which takes place once you have receive your GCSE Results. If you have not heard anything, please contact the colleges.
If you are still undecided about college or what you want to study, you can contact Mrs Godfrey over the summer firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you enrol at your college, you can discuss with the tutors your subject choices and make your final decision about what you want to study at that point.
Apprenticeships – Covid-19 advice
Apprenticeship vacancies are considerably down for this time of year due to Covid-19, which means that it is going to be a lot more competitive to get an apprenticeship. Unlike college, there is no guarantee of a position. Apprenticeships are available all year round, and it is likely that more opportunities will be available next year
It is strongly advisable that those seeking apprenticeships also apply to college as a backup.
After GCSE results day, Mrs Godfrey will be available until early September for ongoing support.
