Career Drop-In sessions are available to all year groups and run weekly on a Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime The group allows pupils to discuss their option choices, identify useful career websites and resources and explore future career aspirations.
Students who would like a careers one to one with our Careers Co-ordinator, Mrs Bowring can contact her via pastoral tutors or by emailing email@example.com
Our careers education is delivered in a variety of ways:
Students will have the opportunity to speak with our Careers Coordinator, who will provide impartial guidance to them on a one-to-one basis. This will include information on a wide range of education and training options and will show no bias towards a particular institution, education or work option.
Since January 2018 all local authority maintained schools and academies must give education and training providers the opportunity to talk to pupils in years 8 to 13 about approved technical qualifications and apprenticeships. Schools must have clear arrangements in place to ensure that all pupils have opportunities to hear from providers of post-16 and post-18 options.
Our Provider Access Policy can be accessed here.
If you are a provider/employer and would like to offer apprenticeships, information and guidance, work experience placements or alternative provision for our students at Post 16, please contact Mr Jonny Greenshields, Deputy Headteacher.
The school uses a range of measures in order to review the impact of our careers programme on our students.
We welcome the opportunity to work with local and national employers in providing opportunities for our students. If you would like a further discussion regarding how you could support our work please contact Deputy Headteacher, Mr Jonny Greenshields: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is never too early to begin thinking about potential careers and future choices. We encourage students to be proactive in this and suggest the following as a good starting point.
To support our work we will invite a range of education and training providers to visit our school and further information can be found in our Provider Access Policy here.
Our Careers provision is overseen by Deputy Headteacher, Mr Jonny Greenshields, he can be contacted at email@example.com
We know that for the majority of our students choosing to remain in school and progress to our highly successful 6th form will be the preferred option.

Some students will prefer to explore other options that may better suit their needs. Information about local colleges and apprenticeships are listed below.
