Careers Education

We have a full Careers Education curriculum from Years 7 to 11, covering the full recommended range of topics, including transitions, career areas, labour market information, employability skills and attitudes. Our CEIAG provision is benchmarked against current best practice and legislation, and monitored using student/parent and other feedback, along with our destinations data. We currently follow statutory guidance and use the eight benchmarks in the Gatsby Foundation Report on Good Career Guidance for our benchmarking.

We are pleased to be working with Form the Future on a number of projects within our Careers Education programme on work experience, Employability Skills, Guidance interviews, employer events and mock interviews. We bring in external speakers, arrange visits, and facilitate individually focussed opportunities and work placements for Year 9-13 students, tailored to their future educational and career ideas and aspirations. We have strong links with employers, and constantly look to develop our employer network, using both local employers and alumni.

We aim to do everything we can to inspire and encourage each of our pupils and students to realise their full potential and have happy and successful working lives.
