Provider Access

Sale Grammar School Provider Access Policy

Introduction

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes 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.

Student entitlement

Students in Years 8-13 are entitled:

  • 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.
  • to hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options evenings, assemblies and group discussions and taster events.
  • to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

Please speak to the CEIAG Co-ordinator to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.

To ensure the safeguarding of our students, all providers would need to submit DBS details 3 weeks before any planned event and visitors would be accompanied by Sale Grammar School staff at all times.

Premises and facilities

The school will make an appropriate venue available for discussions between the provider and students. The provider will need to provide audio visual and other specialist equipment for presentations; the school may be able to provide a projector and screen. This can be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the CEIAG Co-ordinator.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature in the Careers area of the LRC, which is managed by the CEIAG Co-ordinator. The LRC is available to all students at lunch and break times.
