Careers programme

Introduction

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Student entitlement

All students in Years 8-13 are entitled:

  • To find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point.
  • To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events.
  • To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

Premises and facilities 

The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. 

The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Leader or a member of their team. 

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature at the Careers Resource Centre, which is managed by Sue Scott. 

Monitoring and assessment

The school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme through analysis of final destinations of pupils at Years 11 and 13, with particular attention to the percentage of pupils who are NEET.  We also record the level of participation in careers-related activities and pupil responses to the advice and experiences they have received.
