We recognise that school is only the start of our students' journey towards the working life they will enjoy throughout adulthood. We believe it is important that all our students are given the support they need whilst they are with us to make the best decisions they can about their future plans.
Our aim is to ensure everyone is able to recognise the skills and abilities they have, appreciate what they are good at as well as what they enjoy, and understand how their talents can be applied to post-compulsory education and the world of work.
Our Careers Education, Advice and Guidance programme is comprehensive and impartial, focussing on each individuals needs and aspirations. As our students move from Year 7 to 11 they will learn about their Key Stage 4 options, further and higher education, apprenticeships, jobs, careers and the world of work through tutorial time, assemblies, crash-days, special projects, visits to colleges and workplaces, work experience opportunities, CV and Application Form workshops and mock interviews.
