Provider Access Information
This statement sets out our arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with our legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
Students in years 8-13 are entitled:
- To find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point
- To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including
technical education and apprenticeships – through options evenings, assemblies and group discussions and taster events
- To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses
Monitoring for Quality and Impact
The Triple Crown Centre’s careers information, advice and guidance programme is monitored for quality and impact by the school’s Management Board and monitoring of access to and opportunities to engage with, technical, vocational and training providers will form part of this process.
Management of provider access requests
A provider wishing to request access should contact Miss E Clarke (Headteacher), who has responsibility for Careers Information, Advice and Guidance.

Opportunities for access
A number of events and sessions, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents. Examples include school assemblies, Achievement Mentor tutorials, PSHE lessons and focus days. The Triple Crown Centre is also involved with the Life Ready programme in association with Solihull MBC. Providers are very welcome to enquire about speaking with students and parents on a one-to-one basis to support post 16 choices.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature in Reception and this will be made available to students as appropriate.
