At Alpha we are keen to see our students to not only do the best they can in their exams but also to go on into further education or apprenticeships that will equip them with the skills to have a successful future.

Throughout their time at Alpha our curriculum and enrichment programme will help to enhance there life skills ready for the next step, this may include cv writing, interview skills or even financial information on bank accounts and wages. Alongside this we have a robust careers support system, we start to discuss careers in Year 10, with more formal discussions with the most appropriate person for the student regarding their options early in Year 11.

Alpha will then engage the services of Career Advisors to help them on that path and will help arrange and facilitate visits to local colleges and education providers. This support will continue throughout the school year with additional advice on results day and beyond in order to ensure the secure the most appropriate and suitable placement.
