At Belvidere, we have tried to develop the options procedure by introducing different types of courses, for example, vocational GCSEs and BTECs. The aim is to try to focus the options’ process on personalised learning where resources allow.

We try, through our school work and work with our Careers Alliance Careers Adviser, to consider choices beyond year 11 through to 19. Beyond Belvidere, (post 16), many students continue their education either at Shrewsbury Colleges Group. Walford College in Baschurch also offers a range of post 16 provision popular with our students. Some students will gain an apprenticeship, see - https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship , or access a foundation learning programme leading to an apprenticeship.

Many students go on to study A levels. Others prefer a more vocational path, for example studying more practical job related qualifications at College. Study programmes such as ‘Advance’, provided by Shropshire County Training or ‘Mint’ with Juniper Training are also available for those not quite ready to obtain an apprenticeship. With ‘Raising the Participation Age’ legislation, direct entry to employment without training at 16 is restricted.
