Careers Support & Guidance

NEW

Welcome to the careers education, information, advice and guidance area. Here, we will share insights from the career provision at Wilmington Grammar School for Girls (WGSG). Whether you are a parent/carer wanting to be able to support your child to make decisions, a student seeking direction, an employer, or an education or training provider, you will find further information and resources using the filters below, including a summary of our careers programme.

Careers Programme

Career guidance supports our students to make learning choices and plan their futures. Taking a whole school approach, we offer opportunities and inspiration to help students understand how their classroom learning is relevant to the world of work, realise their potential and make good choices about education, training, and work. This takes many forms, including teaching in the curriculum, one-to-one interventions with Careers Advisers, experiential learning, guest speakers from education, training and industry and online services, which are all elements of our careers programme.

We organise work-related learning experiences that allow our students to develop their employability skills and understand the range of career pathways available, complementing our links with employers, colleges, training providers, and universities. Promoting all options equally and improving students’ knowledge of technical pathways helps our students make informed and more confident decisions. Please refer to our provider access statement, which outlines the arrangements for education and training providers to access students.

Evaluation

To ensure we offer the best career guidance available, our activities and events are systematically evaluated by participants, teachers and students to inform future developments. To pursue excellence, we are proud to hold the Investor in Careers award, a national quality standard for organisations that deliver information, advice and guidance that meet the requirements for Ofsted and the ‘Gatsby Benchmarks’.
