Opportunities for access
We welcome input into our careers provision from employers, employees, Universities, Apprenticeship, and Further education providers. Our connections include former students, parents, and local employers and providers, and we are keen to widen this participation. A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carers. These include, but are not exclusive to, an annual careers enrichment week in February that incorporates a Careers & Aspirations Fair for year 9, mock interviews for Year 11, and a week’s work experience for Year 10. There are a number of assemblies on apprenticeships; vocational courses, A-level options, and careers in the summer term for year 10 and an increase in frequency during the Autumn term for year 11. Providers are also invited to attend a number of parental events including parents' evenings and options evening from Year 9 onwards. Outside agencies are also invited to support the curriculum in all subject areas. Some examples include the building trade supporting in maths such as angles and measurements; a law company working with the English department on persuasive writing or a local museum bringing artifacts into history classes to discuss their importance.
Please contact our Careers Coordinator, Mrs Simpson, or our Careers Leader, Mrs Morris email@example.com, to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.
Premises and facilities
Rooms and presentation resources will be made available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. This will be discussed and agreed upon 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 literature in the library to be made available in the careers resource section. This resource is available to students before, during, and after school.
