Post 16 Student and Teacher Resources


Post-16 Career Options | Student and Teacher Resources


Finding time to research your options for after school or college can be tough. After a challenging year (or two!), we understand there’s lost learning to catch up on, a minefield of existing information to plough through and plenty of social activities to fill your free time with.

That’s why, as part of Post-16 Careers Week, we’ve made it easy for students, teachers, parents and carers to access all the information you need in one place.

Get informed about what’s available and, more importantly, what’s right for you. Here’s how…



Bitesize Videos

Don’t know the difference between an A-Level and a T-Level? Not sure what level of Apprenticeship is right for you? Confused about UCAS points and university applications? Start with our 5-minute bitesize videos to tell you everything you need to know.


Mini Quizlets

Think you know it all already? Want to test your knowledge and get the facts? Trial our mini quizlets to find out how much you really know about your next steps after leaving school, college, sixth form or completing an apprenticeship.


Lesson Plans and Presentations

Got a bit more time to fill? Take a look at our snapshot lesson plans and expanded PPT presentations to help you deliver a longer, more in-depth session to your students or to use as conversation starters at home as part of your independent research.


Group & Individual Activities

From key skills flashcards to student transitions case studies, we’ve created a range of group and individual activities for you to complete at home or in the classroom. Start at the beginning and work your way through or pick and choose the ones you need!



Once you’ve taken advantage all our fantastic resources, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand different career paths, job profiles and entry requirements
  • Recognise your strengths, think about your goals and create a career pathway plan to achieve them
  • Create a CV and personal profile highlighting skills, knowledge and behaviours
  • Know the difference between a range of different further and higher education pathways available post-16 and post-18 - and the colleges, sixth forms, training providers and employers locally who offer them
  • Feel confident completing a college, university or job application form
  • Be aware of the support you might need to help you and where to find it from local services
  • Start preparing for adulthood with a range of skills – from decision making to budgeting
