Careers Programme

​​​​​​

 

We aim to ensure that Post-16 pathways facilitate independent living and employability, giving our pupils the best chance we can to have happy and rewarding lives after leaving school.

 

Careers advice offer

 

  • By the end of year 11, all pupils will have participated in a discussion with our independent careers advisor (Hampshire Futures), follow up discussions may be offered where needed and / or requested. Parents / carers are invited to attend year 11 interviews to both share their views and develop an awareness of the Post-16 pathways available.
  • Should parents / carers not be available to attend a discussion, a member of the learning support team will accompany the pupil, helping them to feel comfortable and to communicate information to the best of their ability.
  • Individual records of the outcomes of careers discussions, including any actions that need to be taken, will be available for pupils, parents / carers and school staff.
  • Additional support and discussions will be available through the school Careers Leader (in-house) as required/requested.

 

Our Careers programme

 

Our annual careers programme will include:

 

  • Visits to colleges, Post-16 training providers and employers. These visits will provide pupils with an overview of the range of opportunities available and help to alleviate anxieties about moving on.
  • Invitations for Post-16 training providers, colleges and employers to run workshops throughout the academic year. These visits will aim to inspire pupils and broaden their understanding of the working / adult life.
  • Weekly tutorial sessions dedicated to careers education guidance.
  • Careers evenings, with parents / carers invited to attend presentations from Post-16 training providers and employers.
  • Sharing of labour market information (LMI) with pupils and parents to enable informed decisions to be made for Post-16 career pathways.
