CEIAG Provision – At Hyde we have an in-house Careers Adviser who is also the Careers Coordinator based in the Careers Library (Miss Amdurer), she reports directly to Mr Thompson (Assistant Headteacher). Miss Amdurer provides impartial careers advice and guidance that covers all aspects of further education, apprenticeships, training, careers and employability skills. Miss Amdurer will see students for 1:1 interviews and is on hand to support students during and after results day. As well as her role supporting students and parent/carers through their choices, Miss Amdurer organises careers events with 6th Forms, Colleges, Apprenticeship training providers, local businesses, mock interview sessions along with visits to CHOICES (The Greater Manchester Skills, Careers and Apprenticeships Show), college taster days and universities.

Raising the Participation Age (RPA) – All young people are now required to stay in education or training until they are 18. This is the Government’s policy.
This means that if you left Year 11 in 2013 you will need to remain in learning or training until you are 17/18. If you leave Year 11 from 2014 you will need to remain in learning or training until you are 18. This will equip you with the skills needed to compete in the changing world of work.
It’s not just about staying at school (although lots of people will choose to stay on). You will be able to choose between full time education (at school, or college), work-based learning (such as an apprenticeship), or employment/volunteering for more than 20hrs per week plus part time education.
Visit UCAS Progress to find out more regarding options for post 16 for both full time college courses, and work based learning (apprenticeships) (Please note: Not all college \ 6th forms in Greater Manchester are listed on this site).
