There has never been a time when careers guidance has been as important for young people as it is today. The landscape of education, training and employment opportunities that students need to navigate is more complex and more challenging than that faced by previous generations.
Our college mission statement is for all students to achieve greater heights. In careers education, this translates as every student making the right choices for their progression. We support students in making well-informed decisions by providing access to impartial and independent information and guidance about the range of options (including academic, vocational, apprenticeships) that will help them to achieve their ambitions. By supporting students with decisions at crucial stages, informing them of all their options and introducing them to the world of work, we aim to prepare them for the world of work whichever pathway they choose.
The school measures its CEIAG against the Good Career Guidance report which identifies the set of 8 Gatsby benchmarks that we use a framework for improving our Careers provision.
1: A Stable Careers Programme
2: Learning from Career and Labour Market Information
3: Addressing the Needs of Each Pupil
4: Linking Curriculum to Careers
5: Encounters with Employers and Employees
6: Experiences of Workplaces
7: Encounters with Further and Higher Education
8: Personal Guidance
All careers activity in school is managed by Mr Marner/Assistant Principal and arranged by our Careers Coordinator.
