What is PAL?
Schools to open their doors and allow all training providers (including colleges and universities) to come into their establishment and to help students learn about their post-16 options by connecting them with colleges and universities.
When must the encounters take place?
Students should meet with colleges and universities at various times in their education to learn about all available options. This helps to support students with their future goals.
What should the Provider Encounter include?
Provider encounters must encompass a range of learning opportunities, including information about technical education, colleges, universities, and apprenticeships. This ensures students have a holistic view of their post-16 pathways.
