Careers Education and Guidance

The aim of careers guidance in the school is to prepare all students to take their place to the full in society, both as workers and as members of their local community.

Careers work forms an integral part of both the school curriculum and the pastoral system.  Time is allocated in all Key Stages within the curriculum.  Although the careers work is coordinated by one teacher, all tutorial staff are actively involved.

We benefit from close links and an effective working relationship with Hertfordshire Connexions who are always available to give detailed information and advice concerning employment and Further and Higher education.  The policy of the school is to introduce Careers Education in Year 7.   In Year 9, when subject and course choices and their career implications are discussed, care is exercised to ensure that the selection of subjects retains an open career choice.

During Year 10 students have the opportunity to take part in both work experience and a Careers’ Carousel where employers come into school and explain their profession and skills to our learners.   Important decisions concerning future careers are made in Year 11: the transition from school to apprenticeship, Further Education or a Post-16 course in school.  Every student has the opportunity of at least one interview with a Connexions Advisor and one interview with an employer to gain experience.   

Post-16 students are carefully advised on Higher Education courses at universities and other places of Further Education.  They are also given relevant information regarding employment and training schemes.
