Careers & Employability

Welcome to the careers information and work experience page. We recognise the importance of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and ensure that throughout the year, students have opportunities to engage positively with their futures, both in terms of increasing expectations and exploring the best routes into the careers that interest them.  In line with the Department for Education guidance, we have a coordinated programme of careers support designed around the Gatsby Benchmarks and CDI Framework to offer a coherent programme embedded within school structures.

A summary of the careers programme, including details of how pupils, parent/carers, teachers and employers may access information about the careers programme and how we measure and assesses the impact of the programme on pupils can be viewed via the documents on this page. The date of the programmes next review is September 2021.

We ensure that there is an opportunity for a range of education and training. Our policy statement setting out our arrangements for provider access documents can be viewed using the tabs on the left.

Evaluation of our programme is demonstrated throughout the school, maintaining the Investors in Careers Award and our destination data providing comparable information on the school’s success. Details on our destinations are available on the WG6 website.
