All Key Stage 4 students are provided with one-to-one personal support from our dedicated in-house careers advisor. This allows them the opportunity to make informed choices about their next steps after school, whether that be apprenticeship or further study. Extensive consultations are used as the basis for an individual action plan to be drawn up in which each young person is encouraged to identify their own strengths and areas for development as well as what action they need to take to achieve their longer-term goals.
Students are supported though the process of making applications, attending college open-days and preparing for interviews.
Careers and future planning input is provided to our younger learners via a variety of formats; some formal, via curriculum areas such as Personal and Social Education, and some less formal for example through individual mentoring input. They also benefit from visits from a range of industry professionals who talk about the work they are involved in and field questions from our young people interested in finding out more about their work.
