Teachers embed employability skills, work-related learning and careers guidance into all courses as a regular part of normal lessons.
All courses will include two focus weeks in the year where an opportunity is taken to link curriculum learning with careers.
Every course will offer two opportunities to meet with employers each year to talk about careers which are relevant to your areas of study.
All students on substantial vocational courses will have a dedicated work experience week scheduled for some point in the year when all students will be expected to go out on work placements.
Every student has a Personal Tutor whose job it is to provide pastoral support and guidance to students, including support with their careers and progression planning.
Students will meet their tutors in group tutorials at the start of the Autumn Term of year 12. They can request a 1 to 1 appointment with their tutor at any point in the year.
Tutors deliver progression tutorials in June each year in which students are challenged to start making plans for their progression at the end of year 13.
All level 3 students not applying to university will have a progression interview with their tutor in year 13 to help them make decisions about careers and complete applications for the next stage in their progression.
