Tutorials, University, Careers & Life after Trinity
The Sixth Form team at Trinity aim to support students as they make their choices for further education or the world of work. Whichever route they decide to choose, we are here to guide and advise the best possible options most suited to their needs and aspirations.
We spend our 8:30 to 9.00 am daily form tutorial sessions to guide students through their future career choices and help them develop into independent learners.
In year 13 we help you write your personal statements, apply for student finance and manage your UCAS offers. This is all done during your 8:30 tutorials.

In tutorial time from June in year 12 to the end of year 13 will work though the following guides to help you make your choices and put together the best applications.
Making your choices:
We know that helping your child make choices about their future is difficult. Please make sure you have watched the year 13 scene setting video for advice.
We send out a half termly newsletter to parents from the final half term in year 12.
Please read them here if you have missed them.
Apprenticeships are now available up to degree level and beyond. An apprenticeship is a job with training, meaning you can earn money whilst you gain a nationally recognised qualification.
There are several benefits to opting for an apprenticeship.
- Earning a salary and paid holiday
- Excellent progression opportunities and the option to complete a degree whilst you train.
- Increased future earning potential.
University is still one of the most popular destinations for our students, but it is not always he right choice for all students. There is a lot of information out there to help students decide whether university is right for them, and if it is, which one to go to. Please use the links above to help you make informed choices with your child.
One of the main concerns for many parents is the cost of studying at University. There is plenty of support available and this should not put you off encouraging your child to go to university
There are two types of student finance:
Tuition Fee Loan
The university or college sets your tuition fee, and the loan is paid directly to them. It must be paid back but only once you reach a certain pay threshold. If you’re a full-time student, you can get up to £9,250. If you’re studying an accelerated degree course, you could get up to £11,100.
Maintenance Loan (for living costs)
