We provide our pupils with multiple learning opportunities to engage with the world of work through encounters with employers, professionals and opportunity providers allowing pupils to discover their strengths and interests whilst developing careers management skills that empower our learners to confidently move towards their long and short term career goals.

Research shows that parents have the strongest influence on their children's career choices. We highly value our parental community and the experiences, knowledge and skills you can bring to the formal education of your children. We encourage our parents to support our Careers programme, for example providing career talks, mock interviews and work placements. If you're able to get involved please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need information to support your child's career decisions, see the following websites. If you need any further support, please contact the Careers team or speak to us during the next Parents Evening.
Successatschool.org have created guides to help parents and carers steer their children through the confusing world of careers choices. From university and apprenticeships to work experience and gap years, the guide covers it all.

We continually measure and assess the impact of our programme on students in various ways, such as student, parent and tutor surveys, as well as inviting feedback from employers who get involved in activities. We also use destination data obtained by the careers team through individual follow up to monitor trends about where our students move onto.
