Careers Advice and Guidance

The advice offered to students will help them interpret information and apply it to their own situation. The guidance offered is the more in-depth support provided by qualified practitioners to help students explore their options and make informed choices that are best for them.

Careers Education

As students progress through the year groups they will experience a planned programme of activities which help them to develop the knowledge and skills to understand themselves, consider the potential opportunities available, have time dedicated to carrying out more research and then make decisions to move on to the next stage.

Effective Engagement with Employers

There will be opportunities to be inspired, informed and advised by employers through talks, workshops, lunchtime drop in sessions, visiting guest speakers to assemblies and work place visits. This engagement with employers is further developed with them carrying out mock interviews and assisting with enterprise activities and offering work experience, enrichment and volunteering opportunities.
