School Careers

brand icon

The Centre’s IAG careers programme is designed to meet the career needs of all students at the Centre and on home tuition. The careers programme and plan for 2018/19 has been restructured. This includes careers education in PSHE, STEM based subjects, careers guidance activities (group work and individual interviews), LMI information and research activities such as work-related learning, career action planning/ goal setting and recording pupil achievements. Planned work experience preparation and follow-up take place in PSHE lessons and other appropriate parts of the curriculum, e.g. Enrichment sessions / activities (See attached plan).

Planning individual career pathways is important. A young person’s career is their pathway through learning and work. All young people need a planned programme of IAG activities to help them make decisions and plan their careers, both in school and after they leave. All students are entitled to careers education and guidance (IAG) that is impartial and confidential. It will be integrated into their experience of the whole curriculum, based on a partnership with students and their parents or carers. The programme promotes equality of opportunity, inclusion and anti-racism.  Support is offered through our Connexions representative, Pauline Jackson.  Support could include:

  • 6th form options
  • College / FE / HE
  • Apprenticeships / Traineeship’s
  • CV / Job preparation
  • Gaining employment experience
