Transition Planning, Leavers Destinations & Careers Programme Information
PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION – PLEASE NOTE WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF UPDATING THE CONTENT ON THIS PAGE
The transition of students from VEC to post-school provision represents a significant period of change for both the young leavers and their families. We work together with all parties to ensure the transition period is a well-established process and not a single event.
In October/November a concentrated effort is made to check the destinations of each individual young person, including their living arrangements and continued qualifications or training if appropriate. This is done by a variety of methods including contact with the school/college and speaking to the young person, their parent or guardian.
Student destinations Data Summer 2022 (8 students)
|Student Destinations 2021-22||Numbers|
|SEND Further Education College||4|
|Further Education College||1|
|Own programme (including social care support -as needed)||3|
|Total number of student leavers||8|
Leavers who stay on in Post 16 are more likely to progress to further education and learning on leaving school.
Parents and students have access to onsite future pathways support, information and guidance including the liaison from our Options and Careers Co-ordinator.

Careers Programme Information
School Careers Leader: Ed Potterton
The DfE released a new statutory guidance document in January 2018, including a number of new requirements for school careers programmes, most of which are to be met by the end of 2020. Many of the requirements are already met at Victoria Education Centre and we continue to provide specific advice for careers support for our students through working in partnership with families, the EHC plan and employers where appropriate.
