Progression from WQE
We have well established systems and processes for supporting applications to Higher Education, employment or indeed anything our students plan to do. Each student is offered the support and impartial advice and guidance needed to make aspirational, yet realistic, applications for either further study or professional employment.
We have developed close working relationships with a number of universities to ease transition and to allow our students to progress onto suitable courses and receive preferential offers for higher-level study.
Success is often measured by our students’ consistently high level of academic achievement and progression into higher education or employment, but each year we are also delighted by our students’ outstanding performances in other fields: their sporting triumphs, cultural creativity and community contributions on local and national stages.
WQE has definitely helped me to develop into an independent learner which I feel will help me as I progress to university. I particularly enjoyed taking part in the wide range of enrichment options offered to me. In my second year I have had the opportunity to do the Extended Project Qualification that has developed my research skills and also allowed me to gain a deeper insight into my chosen subjects.
