A Careers Adviser provides inset sessions to update teachers about new initiatives in Careers Progression and Progression routes.

Students in our Secondary School and Sixth Form get the opportunity to discuss higher education related issues including student loans, scholarships, grants as well as alternative careers progression routes.

Sessions are delivered on various occupational topics and the opportunities available both locally and nationally.

All statement students will have a one to one guidance interview with an Adviser to discuss their Moving on Plan. After the interview the Advisers draw up an S139, which is a transition document for the student to take to the new providers.

The school regularly conducts questionnaires with each year group to assess the impact that the career programmes have on our students. We value student feedback and take on board any recommendations.

Classroom workshops and mentoring programmes also have entry and exit forms in order to capture the impact of more tailored events.
