Careers Vision Statement 2020/21

For each student at our school, our governors,  senior leadership team and staff share the same ambition; to deliver a fulfilling and comprehensive careers programme that is inclusive, individualised and meaningful.   We work collaboratively within our community and encompass the expertise of employers, parents/carers and further education and training providers to establish a culture of ambition. Our pupils benefit by providing a platform to talk openly and receive guidance about their future, improve their labour market and career awareness,  improve their decision making, develop their employability skills, provide opportunity for them to learn from experiences of employment and employers, all whilst growing and nurturing their unique aspirations.

Key Strategic Objectives 2020/21
  • To continue to meet the needs of our aspiring students and improve our programme by utilising destinations data,  student and parent surveys and evaluation
  • To enhance and improve the thematic and progressive ‘futures day’  for each year group
  • To further increase apprenticeship knowledge at level 3 and level 4 and seek further insight from employers/FE/Universities/degree apprenticeships
  • To further develop to develop the skills set of our pupils that transfer into employment
  • To further have the support of apprenticeship talks from non-traditional paths and industries to  include construction, digital and energy
  • To increase the opportunity for our pupils to engage with universities
