Careers Elements

Personalised Careers Guidance: during KS4 all pupils will receive an individual careers guidance interview with a level 7 qualified independent careers advisor

Careers Advice: group sessions on different aspects of further study and careers takes place during focus days and period R sessions. Careers knowledge, skills and experiences are also developed during focus days and period R sessions.

Curriculum Focuses: topics and individual lessons within subjects focus on different aspects of careers (e.g., employment sectors in Geography, persuasive writing in English).

Careers Events: we provide opportunities for students in every year group to develop their careers knowledge, skills, expertise, and experiences through career events. These events range from the post-16 information evening to taster days and options assemblies.

Local Education and Training Provider Links: We work closely with local education and training providers to ensure that students and parents are aware of the different pathways available to them (e.g., A Levels, vocational courses, apprenticeships, technical qualifications). Students have the opportunity to meet local education and training providers in post-16 assemblies and at the post-16 information evening.

Employers and Employee Links: We work closely with local employers and employees to provide multiple opportunities for students to learn about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace.
