We work proactively to support our leavers in their progression onto further education, training and employment. Data captured in January 2022 of the activity of our recent 2021 cohort, indicate that 90.5% have continued in further education, 0% in full time training positions, 5.88% progressed onto Apprenticeship programs and 3.53% of leavers were yet to settle into their career path (NEET). We continue to support leavers throughout their Year 12 and 13 studies to encourage sustained progress into their chosen careers.
