Sample a Taste of Post-16 Education; Education & Training Sponsor's Message


MAKING decisions about where and what to study next year can be difficult.

Middlesbrough's Macmillan Academy offers Year 11 students a chance to sample courses and see for themselves what's on offer. Many Year 11 students will feel that they have enough on their minds at the moment with studying, taking GSCE exams and dealing with everyday life.

However, now is also the time that they need to be making big decisions about what to do next year.
