The aim of the school is to provide our students with information, advice and guidance on the full range of opportunities available to them as they progress through their education and onto their next transitions and into adulthood. Through PSHE and employability lessons, dedicated timetable collapse days and a diverse range of extra-curricular and careers-based opportunities, students will have the capacity to explore their future ambitions.
We intend to achieve all the demands of the ‘Gatsby benchmarks’, including enhancing student encounters with workplace employers, to deliver an excellent programme to support the aspirations of our young people.
Our onsite careers leads Ashleigh Sinclair and Michelle Waugh coordinate careers within the school and facilitate the learning and development linked to careers, employability and work experience encounters and experiences. You can contact them on email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
The school uses the Gatsby benchmarks as the basis of our CEIAG provision. To find out more about the benchmarks you can go to the Gatsby Good Career Guidance website.
The careers programme is designed to provide a coherent platform for students to explore their personal aspirations for their own personal journeys and provide impartial advice to our young people around life choices, next steps and work experience choices.
Our aim is to raise the aspirations of our students and provide them with the knowledge and skills to develop their own career paths. Our success in achieving this aim is measured by student voice, parent voice, employer feedback (including our Enterprise Partner) and the destination data we collate in school.
The careers programme is reviewed on an annual basis in consultation with students, teachers, parents and our linked Governor and Enterprise Partner with the intention of enhancing our provision year upon year.
