Advice and guidance for students receiving their A Level results
14 Aug
Entrust offers advice and guidance to students receiving their A Level results Entrust Careers Advisers will be on hand to support Staffordshire pupils receiving their A Level results on Thursday 16 August. Commissioned by Staffordshire schools, the Entrust team will be available to talk to students about their results and their next steps. Any students who need follow-up advice and support, will be able to contact the team by calling 0333 300 1900, or emailing skills@entrust-ed.co.uk. Students can also call the national exam results helpline, operated by the National Careers Service, on 0800 100 900 between the hours of 8am - 10pm. Chris Blackwell, Chief Executive Officer of Entrust, said “Our Careers Advisers offer young people access to expert advice and guidance to help them make well-informed decisions about their future. Every student has different skills, values, qualifications, aspirations and motivations and the team draw on those individual qualities to help them tailor their advice and guidance, motivate students and ultimately inspire futures. On behalf of Entrust, I would like to wish all students receiving their A Level results the best of luck.” Janet Kemp, Careers Adviser at Entrust, has provided her top ten tips for surviving results day: Don’t panic and try and get a good night’s sleep. Stress and tiredness are not a good mix. Do try to be in the country on results day if possible. Dealing with any unplanned situations if you are on holiday isn’t ideal. If you have applied to university check Track before you collect your results. Track opens at 8am on Thursday 16th August. Don’t worry if your Track status hasn’t updated straight away. Don’t be disappointed if you haven’t been accepted at your first choice! Remember the reason you picked your second choice over the others. You are likely to be just as happy there! If you really know that you won’t be happy then all is not lost. Talk to teachers and advisers and discuss what your options are. Have a back-up plan. This could be a list of courses and/or universities you want to approach via clearing. You may want to consider resits or formulate a plan of action to seek a different apprenticeship/ route. Don’t think of it as being negative. Its sensible! Research your plan ‘B’ before you get your results so that you don’t make major life decisions in a moment of panic. Use your teachers and careers advisers. They are experienced at how best to approach any unforeseen situations regarding your results and are on hand in school to support at this time. Talk to them and try to resist the urge to slope back home when there is so much help on hand. You could consider a gap year? A good constructively planned gap year can look good on a CV or personal statement. However, a year out drifting or hoping that your goal in life will suddenly come to you isn’t as positive. Don’t rush any decisions. Assess your options whether things have gone better or worse than planned. If you are choosing a new option or university, then you may not have researched or visited as you did with your initial choices so think things through. Not going to university? Your exam results can still help stand you in good stead for apprenticeships and other routes. Results aren’t everything though and they are just part of what you have to offer. Relevant work experience, volunteering and the range of skills and qualities you have are all vitally important to help you to progress in learning and work. Take some time to think about what YOU have to offer and then seek some advice. Entrust Careers Advisers will be available on results day in Alleynes Academy, Cardinal Griffin Catholic High School, Cheslyn Hay Sport and Community High School, Coppice Academy, Erasmus Darwin Academy, Haywood Academy, King Edwards VI High School Stafford, Leek Federation, Nether Stowe High School, Norton Canes High School, Paget High School, St John Fisher Catholic College, Thomas Alleynes High School, Weston Road Academy and Wolgarston High School.
