In Year 11 all students will need to think about what they want to do after their GCSEs.
They must consider if they want to continue in full time education (A Levels or college courses), apply for an apprenticeship or look for work and training. Starting at the end of year 10 students will be given support to help them make informed decisions.
All of our year 11 students will be given a username and password for a website called UCAS Progress.
UCAS Progress allows students to search and apply for college courses, all in one place. The website is used by most schools and colleges in the county and beyond.
Students can use the website at school or at home and can search for college courses that interest them, using their most likely GCSE grades to help them choose the right course. When logged in, students can add courses to their favourites, add their personal details and complete a personal statement. Once all sections of the form have been completed, students can then submit their application.
All students will be taken through the UCAS Progress process step by step to ensure that their application is as smooth and trouble free as possible. Students will also have access to the school careers advisor for impartial advice and guidance during this time.
In addition to UCAS Progress all students will be encouraged to use a programme called KUDOS. This is a careers resource, that Beauchamp College subscribes to, which allows students to find out about careers based on their interests and skills.
All students will be given access to KUDOS with a personal username and password. (Students can also request this from the SSC or the careers office.)
Below is a summary of the key things students will be doing throughout the school year to prepare for their UCAS Progress application. All Beauchamp students can make a careers appointment with the school careers advisor to discuss their options after GCSE and their future career ideas.
