Guidance for Teachers

The Governors and staff are committed to gaining The Quality in Careers Standard (Investors in Careers) by September 2019. Our aim is to provide an outstanding programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance activities that satisfy national requirements and provide guidance which enables us to address the career development needs of all our students.

The school is fully committed to the achievement of the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks. Ensuring that careers education is delivered, not only through discrete careers lessons, but also through every curriculum subject from Years 7-13 is an essential part of that commitment. Embedding careers learning into the curriculum is fundamental to our students’ success.  Through curriculum subjects students are also able to have a wider range of encounters with employers, FE and HE providers and workplace visits. These are fundamental to students gaining a broad and deep understanding of the world of work.

The resources below are a sample of what is available to support teaching staff. Further help and support is available from the careers department.
