Policies and Procedures
Parents/carers will be invited to careers interviews in school, but can also contact the Careers Adviser at any time.
All pupils will receive independent and impartial advice about all the education, training and employment opportunities on offer, regardless of their individual circumstances: and connected areas such as use of leisure time and money (including grants and benefits) will be included. Careers education will be delivered through the curriculum and links made to all relevant curriculum areas in whole class, small group and individual teaching opportunities.
Our school Careers Advisor is Richa Aryan, who is available to see all students in Year 8 and above for a careers interview, with parents/carers invited.
A written report is then produced and sent to parents/carers.
Individual guidance interviews will be offered to students in Years 9, 11, 13 and 14
Year 9 students
Students and their parents/ carers will be invited to an individual careers meeting with the school careers advisor. It will be explained to parents/ carers that there will be a person centred review for their child later in the year and the purpose of the careers meeting is to prepare a careers report to inform that meeting. The report will include a statement of intent for their continued future provision.
