Careers Programme

The Careers Programme in the Sixth Form starts in Year 11 with an introductory talk on post-18 options. This reflects the school's approach to long term career development and the importance of early preparation. In Year 12 students are given opportunities for personal development and self-knowledge through practical and interactive activities.

 

The range of careers available is explored with both individuals and groups. Students have the opportunity to reflect carefully on how they can best present themselves and how they can increase their chance of success in their career. Higher Education is emphasised, as over 90% of students have successful applications, but alternative options such as further education, apprenticeship and the school leavers' programme is also explored. In the summer term of Year 12 the formal process of UCAS application begins and students are supported so that they undertake this from an informed, confident perspective.

The aim is to work collaboratively with staff, students and parents to prepare the leavers with tangible support for their journey into their career.
