The Key Stage 5 Co-ordinator co-ordinates the advice and guidance services offered to students. The mission of The English Academy is to empower students to become pro-active in their consideration of post-18 choices, so that their decisions are based on sound information, and an assessment of your aptitudes and interests, within a programme established to offer both individual and group counselling as appropriate.
Students receive advice about writing personal statements and applications and about interviews and there are opportunities for interview practice. In addition, Year 12 students are interviewed individually in order to ensure that the most appropriate and rewarding courses available to each student may be identified.
Students are given practical help in the final preparation of their application for university and in the preparation of the Personal Statement. This may involve preparation for UCAS applications. Students wishing to apply to university are able to use the Careers Library, and the prospectuses which universities worldwide send to TEA. There are regular visits from universities during PSHE time.
