Leading On - The Future of the School Sixth Form Part 1 - An Overview

This session is the first webinar in a three-part series.

This session will explore the current sixth form landscape and discuss the changes that will influence sixth form provision in the future.

Attendees wanting to understand funding and vocational reform in more detail should also register for parts 2 and 3.

With sixth form closures, mergers of FE and sixth form colleges, and National Colleges and Institutes of Technology all competing for 16-19 students, it is vital that schools can adapt and develop strategies to help them to survive and thrive.

This session will examine the post-16 landscape, how the academic and vocational curriculum is changing, the impact of the new 16-19 funding streams on provision, as well as the implications of T levels and the Transition Year.

This session provides a foundation for two further webinars in the series.

If you cannot attend live you will receive a copy of the recording, links to any resources discussed, and the opportunity to submit questions.
