I find my college a stimulating and creative working environment. It has always supported me in my professional development.
I've thoroughly enjoyed my first year of teaching at my sixth form college. My placement at a local secondary school has also given me an understanding of students' learning styles and needs.
I have had the opportunity to enhance my skills through the staff development programme. It is extremely rewarding to be part of such a successful sixth form college where resources are widely available and the students so enthusiastic.
Sixth form colleges are currently the most successful providers of post-16 education. In Hampshire, good practice is normal and students enjoy high levels of success. There is breadth in the curriculum and equality of opportunity for students whether they find education and training challenging or are very able students. Working in a Hampshire sixth form college is a rewarding and career enhancing opportunity with considerable scope for career progression and development alongside colleagues from partner colleges.
The 11 sixth form colleges in the Wessex Group of Sixth Form Colleges are all non-selective and provide a distinctive form of education for students who are primarily aged between 16 and 19.
