Why attend?

Break down the barriers of leading a Sixth Form to success and benefit from highly practical guidance and insights into how you can deal with the challenges and the wide range of responsibilities – from Ofsted to university preparation.

Perfect for those who will be new to the role, those that are moving to a new centre in September or existing Heads who want to breathe new life into their centre, this one-day workshop will help you to lay the foundations for short and long term successes in your department, among your teachers and all of your students.

What's covered?
  • As Ofsted Inspectors grade sixth forms separately - is your sixth form provision the best it can be?
  • Linear A-levels require a different approach – is your curriculum designed to support linear learning?
  • The Sutton Trust cites education as the key to social mobility and excellent subject knowledge and pedagogy as the best indicators of successful outcomes – do all your teachers deliver?
  • University preparation is central to what good sixth forms do – are you setting students up for success?
