SIXTH FORM

EXTRA CURRICULAR

Tutor 

When entering the Sixth Form each student is assigned to a tutor group, their tutor teacher will be first port of call for the students’ needs during their time in the Sixth Form and the group of students will form a close bond, supporting each other throughout their time here.  Students meet with their tutor twice a day for registration, 8.45am and 2.05pm. The tutor sessions are designed to help students get the best out of their time at Trinity Sixth Form. 

 

The Tutor programme includes guided sessions on:

  • Data review- Keeping up to date with the students current data/ progress

  • Next Steps- Research into their next steps… education, employment or training

  • Workshops - create CV’s and Personal Statements and practice interview techniques

  • UCAS- Support with the application process

  • Presentations- delivered by outside agencies

  • Study skills- a range of taught lessons on how to effectively study

  • Work Experience- Support to find the right placement for you

 

Work Experience

Work Experience is a compulsory part of the curriculum at Trinity Sixth Form. Students are actively encouraged to undertake as much relevant work experience as they can, with a minimum of 1 weeks relevant work experience required. A “stop” week is put into the sixth form calendar where all students will either be on a residential trip or Work Experience, although other times can be arranged by speaking to the Sixth Form Team.

Work Experience is a valuable asset when applying for your next steps, employers are keen for student to have had “real life experience” and some university courses require work experience/ placement as entry criteria when applying. If you are interested in doing an ongoing work placement, speak to a member of the sixth form team to see if it could fit into your timetable.

Support to find a Work Experience placement will be given to students in tutor periods, however it is the students’ responsibility to ensure they gain a placement.

Work Experience forms will need to be completed and handed into the Sixth Form Office before your placement,
