Careers & work-related learning
Our aim is to prepare students to move into sustained paid employment. Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are therefore central to the work of the college and the Principal has strategic oversight of this area. In addition most members of staff are involved in delivering different aspects of our Careers Education programme, with specialist support from our local authority careers advisor.
You can see an overview of the year here, with a recommended checklist of activities that can be completed in school, independently, with support from staff at school, or friends and family at home:
It would be impossible to provide students with good quality information and experiences without the support and partnership of volunteers and partner organisations from many different professions. We encourage all students to engage in activities that allow them to meet professionals and experience different workplaces, to help them make informed decisions about the future. For the current academic year 2020/2021, most activities are taking place remotely. Professionals who are interested in offering a Virtual Insight Tour can take a look at this event brief:
We are keen for colleges, training providers and apprenticeship providers to provide students with insight into the options available to them after Year 11. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange to speak to our students or send us information about your courses and apprenticeships:
