Provider Access Statement

Provider access statement 2021/22

Introduction

This statement sets out the responsibility of the colleges arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at college to give them information about their education and/or training that they offer.

Entitlement  

Franklin College has a responsibility to provide all students with comprehensive and impartial advice and guidance regarding progression routes beyond College, which includes information about further learning, apprenticeships or employment opportunities.

This is necessary to secure the best possible outcome and to equip our students with the skills that employers need and supports the Department for Education white paper, ‘Skills for Lifelong Learning for Opportunity and Growth’ which sets out how further education will support students to get the skills the economy needs.

To ensure that students are aware of what is available to them we work with many different education and training providers who engage with our students. This complies with the college’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.  In addition, the Baker Clause, an amendment to the act, stipulates that colleges must allow all education and training providers access.

Management of provider access requirements

A number of events, integrated into our careers programme offers providers an opportunity to come into college to speak to students and/or their parents/carers.  Full details of our Careers Programme can be found on the website. 

A provider wishing to access college should contact Emma Swinburn, Careers Lead and CLT Associate emma.swinburn@franklin.ac.uk or 01472 875000.

Roles and responsibilities

The two named College Careers Leader are: 

Emma Swinburn, CLT Associate (Careers and Employability) and Zofia Ciopcinski, Careers Officer.  Both are trained to Level 6 CEIAG.
