Fulford's Career Programme...
Fulford School has traditionally been very successful at ensuring our students are on an appropriate pathway Post 16 and 18 with measurable outcomes such as a lower than average level of students who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). The majority of our Year 11 student’s progress into the school 6th Form Post 16, however, we also have a number of students who progress to other colleges/6th forms as well as apprenticeships. We ensure all students have a full knowledge of all the options available to them Post 16 and support them to ensure they choose the most appropriate pathway for them. We use our destinations data to monitor the progression of students and to measure the effectiveness of our careers guidance to improve outcomes for young people in the school.
