Many 14-16 programmes have been developed over the last few years with the expansion
of Practical Learning Provision to include the Young Apprentice Programme, the Key
Stage 4 Engagement Programme (Learn2Work) as well as innovative Gifted & Talented initiatives.
Exeter College engages with the 14-19 collaborative agenda through active participation
across three consortia within Devon, namely the Exeter Partnership
(Exeter4Learning), the Mid & East Devon Consortium and the South Devon
Partnership. Collaboration has grown and now collectively includes Exeter
College working with over 20 schools.
This in turn leads to a well-informed, diverse and fit for purpose collaborative
