We have pages on specific areas of Post-18 CEIAG

For those students who do not want to go onto University, there are a number of good websites to take a look at such as Not Going to Uni which gives you a range of information on alternative options after you've left sixth form. Also, check out the Alternative Professional Pathways noticeboard outside the 6th Form office for opportunities.
