Post 16 Planning Meetings

What to expect in a 1-1 Post-16 Planning Meeting:

The post-16 planning meetings are a great opportunity for students to talk about the different choices and places of study available to them after Year 11.  

Not sure what to expect? This video can be quite useful.

What will be discussed? 

Who will the meeting be with?

Students will be speaking with a fully qualified and impartial Careers Advisor. If it is more comfortable bringing another adult with you, that's fine - just let us know and this can be arranged for you. The Careers Advisor might be Mrs Murchie, or one of our Hampshire Futures Careers Advisors. 

Where will the meeting take place?

At Bay House, the meeting could be in Careers 1 or Careers 2 at the bottom of O block. This will be stated in the emails sent home. At Brune Park, we will be in the Careers Office between TS12 and TS13, opposite the entrance to the dance studio. If you arrive a little early and we are still with someone else, please knock and let us know you are there.

How long will the meeting last?

It will usually take 35-45 minutes. 

Is there anything I need to prepare?

It's good to have a list of questions ready, but it's not necessary. And don't worry if you are shy or anxious, we won't put you on the spot. It's a very informal chat! We will send you notes afterwards with details of what we discussed and include lots of useful links.

How will I find out about the meeting?

Parents/carers and students will receive an email home the week before. We will put a reminder on the Tutor Bulletin the day before, and your tutor will also give you a slip with the meeting on.

What happens if I forget to come along?

It might be difficult to reschedule you quickly, but we'll do our best. Please let us know if you need to reschedule - feel free to knock on the Careers Admin door; next to R11, or email us at
