Provider Access Protocol

This protocol statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of work, training and education providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about their provision offers. This protocol ensures that we comply with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

What are our students entitled to?

All pupils in years 8-14 are entitled:

• to find out about qualifications and apprenticeship opportunities in technical education, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available to students at each transition point

• to hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, through options events, assemblies, group discussions and taster events, speakers and job fairs

• to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses

All of the above entitlement will be offered in line with the student’s individual needs, interests and wishes and with appropriate adult support

To contact us

If a provider wishes to request access to our students they should contact:

Louise Powell, Acting Assistant Head on 01793 493910 or email lpowell@uplandsschool.org.uk


Opportunities for access

Opportunities and events are planned across the school year to offer providers the chance to visit Uplands and speak to students/parents/carers about career opportunities. These will be advertised on our school and the Brunel Academies Trust websites, and in local press where appropriate.
