Careers & Work-Related Learning

The implementation of our careers programme will be achieved through a team approach, according to the activity and Pathway. All staff have a responsibility to include careers education within their teaching, linking activities to ‘work’ related contexts, working towards raising the aspirations of students.

Delivery will be via Talentino, Careers at Every Level programme, KAPOW schemes of work, careers events, workshops, ASDAN curriculum units, Work Experience Placements and whole class discussions. Where possible, learning will be assessed and accredited through ASDAN units.

If you would like to access further information regarding the careers programme, please contact our Careers Lead (details below):

Our careers programme will be reviewed on a regular basis, using the Gatsby Benchmarks via the Careers Company Compass Tool.
