Careers Information Advice Guidance is a significant part of the school’s provision, helping students make effective decisions and choices about their future career plans and next steps, especially at post-16 and post-18. CIAG is primarily delivered to students via fortnightly Personal Development lessons (weekly for y13). There are also opportunities for universities and approved training, apprenticeship, and vocational education providers to speak to students through assemblies, KS5 Student Development afternoons and other key CIAG events that are held throughout the school year.

All students and their parents/guardians have access to the Unifrog platform. This is a ‘one stop shop’ that helps students compare every university course, every apprenticeship, and Further Education courses - then apply successfully.

Through our careers programme, linked strongly to The Gatsby Benchmarks, developed through the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, we aim to:

  • Provide comprehensive information and advice
  • Support aspirations and student progression
  • Promote equality of opportunity and challenge stereotypes
  • Respond to the needs of each learner
  • Develop strong skills of reflection and action planning, enabling students to manage their next steps with impact
  • Provide students with the knowledge and understanding required to make informed decisions and choices about their future

The delivery of the careers programme is done mainly through Personal Development lessons. Other vehicles are form tutor time, year group and KS assemblies, external visitors such as employers and guest speakers, curriculum, Careers Fair, employability interviews, and advisory meetings.

We measure and assess the careers programme's impact on pupils through regular staff, student and parent voice surveys, and the analysis of destination data.
