Policy Statement on Provider Access

Greenwood Academies Trust: Provider Access Policy


This policy statement sets out Greenwood Academies Trust's arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at our academies for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Pupil entitlement

 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 events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events;

 to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.
