Careers Education, Information & Guidance Statement
Careers education and guidance programmes make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. A planned progressive programme of activities supports our pupils to choose pathways that suit their interests and abilities and help them to follow a career path and sustain employability throughout their working lives.
Careers education is provided through a varied and comprehensive programme throughout years 7 to 11. Students take part through small group careers and labour market information sessions, assemblies, tutor time, guest speakers, virtual experiences, work experience and 1:1 advice and guidance.
A qualified Level 6 careers advisor is available on site a minimum of one day of every week. All Year 11 pupils are provided with at least one face-to-face interview to assist with post-16 guidance and applications and further appointments are made available for those pupils when additional support is required.
We are always looking for facilitators from industry who can attend our events, provide careers talks and work with students on activities based around their industry and different careers paths. If you are a business wanting to create links with schools and work with young people, then we’d love to hear from you.
