We have successfully delivered information sessions for Post 16 options for the last four years, we are hoping to continue to provide this valuable information for year 11 pupils in 2020 whilst adhering to the Coronavirus safety guidelines, we will continually review the arrangements and keep you updated

Post 16 Options Roadshows are information events for pupils leaving Year 11 for Sixth Form or Further Education. These free to attend mini expos take place in September/October each year and bring together the main providers of post 16 education in the area. Each institution has a stand with course information and staff available to speak to regarding your particular interests. In addition, there will be information from the Principal of Shrewsbury Colleges Group explaining how the different qualifications work and allow you to progress to university and employment. 

Places on Progression Events need to be pre-booked so we can manage numbers and keep the event safe with distancing, and provide a quick check-in service for you to give you the best experience possible.
