Post 16 Transition
Preparation for Post-16 Education
Causeway School is a “Raising the Participation Age” champion school a status awarded to us in recognition of the excellent work that we do
in preparing our young people for the next steps in their compulsory education.
We are proud of each and every one of our students and we want the very best for them as they move on from here to college or work with training.
Causeway students are encouraged to have high aspirations and are made aware of the wide range of routes and courses available to them in the
local area. We work closely with all local Post-16 education providers who, between them can offer a huge range of courses across all levels
Information, advice and guidance towards Post-16 choices is delivered through PSHE lessons, in small groups with individual tutors and one-to-one
by highly qualified YMCA CONNECT advisors.
By working closely with the people who know them and the system best we are able to direct our students towards the best course for them at
the best time in the best place. This could be a highly academic A’ level course, work with training or a vocational course.
A significant number of Causeway students go on to continue with their studies at higher education, university level. We work together with
the University of Sussex to begin to prepare our students for this from year nine with university visits and sample study sessions. Past
Causeway students have recently been awarded degrees in Oceanography, Business and Economics, Music and Education. These are all huge achievements
for the young people and we congratulate them.
