Careers Strategy Plan

Careers Education helps prepare our pupils for the opportunities and responsibilities of adult working life and, as such, has a vital contribution to the school’s aims of working closely with employers, Higher Education institutions and our local community. It supports pupils in the life-time experience of learning so they can make a positive contribution to the world around them. Through the careers curriculum, we ensure pupils receive support and guidance at key transition points. Referral systems (including diagnosis of needs) ensure that pupils requiring more specialist guidance can receive it from appropriate agencies. Our careers curriculum is accessible to all pupils, promotes diversity and provides pupils with the skills and knowledge to forge their own successful careers.

Ethos – The general aim of the Careers Education and Guidance is to help pupils to:

  • Know themselves better
  • Be aware of education, training and career opportunities
  • Make choices about their own education and training
  • Manage the move from school to new roles and situations.

The school offers:

  • Access to guidance
  • An opportunity for pupils to compile a personal record of achievements in around time spent at school
  • Experience of the world of work
  • Access to up-to-date sources of information about education and career opportunities available post-16
  • An opportunity for pupils to compile a personal action plan

Most staff are involved somehow or other in the Careers Education and Guidance programme as we believe this is the best way to provide a well-rounded education.
