Sixth form / college is often the final step before students leave education and enter the working world or attend university. Whatever path they choose the qualifications and grades they achieve are fundamental to their future.
With an increase in the age at which teenagers can leave the education system, sixth forms and colleges are becoming more popular amongst students and that trend is set to continue.
Greater attendance at sixth form colleges is putting more pressure on teachers and support staff working within these institutions.
Having more students to educate means their performance is likely to be closely scrutinised.
Students need optimal support whilst at sixth form to achieve impressive grades and reach their potential. As they become more specialised in the subjects that they study, the volume of teaching staff they rely on becomes less.
As such, absences in teaching staff have more impact on students’ education. We offer you a policy to protect against this. To see how much a policy like this would cost you, please get a free no obligation quote today.
