Careers Advice and Post 16

Post-16 Provider Events

We aim to regularly update our list of all the upcoming Post-16 provider open evenings and events, so that students and parents/carers alike can make decisions about courses being taken at Outwood Academy Redcar, and beyond. If you are a college provider and we have missed a date, please email Mr Thynne, Assistant Principal who leads our Careers and Post-16 provision.

Monthly Post-16 Lunchtime Drop-In Sessions – Tuesdays

Each month, we are grateful for our partner Post-16 Colleges and Apprenticeship providers, who man stands during one lunchtime on a Tuesday, to promote choices beyond GCSE, answer questions and inspire our student for their next steps. For parents, the timetable is below, if you want your son/daughter to pick up particular information. We always encourage Y11 to have visited colleges and made their applications before Christmas.

More Information

The careers education and guidance programme at Outwood Academy Redcar seeks to positively support students to acquire the educational, social and employability skills necessary for lifelong success in a diverse and changing world of work.

We are currently working with an external provider:

Together with staff from CareersInc we will support the career development in a number of ways including:
