Our Careers Policy

A young person’s career is their pathway through learning and work. All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them make 14-19 choices which are right for them and to enable them to have the necessary skills to be able to manage their careers throughout their lives. Schools have a statutory duty to provide careers education in Years 7-11 and to give students access to careers information, advice and guidance.

Rationale:

Careers education and guidance programmes make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. A planned progressive programme of activities supports them in choosing 14-19 pathways that suit their interests and abilities and help them to follow a career path and sustain employability throughout their working lives.

Our Developmental Priorities:

  1. Raise aspirations for all learners

  2. Increase career opportunities for all learners

  3. Provide opportunities for vulnerable students at KS4.
