High quality, independent careers guidance is crucial in helping our pupils leave the School more fully rounded and ready for the world of work. It is our aim to ensure that all of our pupils have access to external perspectives from the world outside of the School. Also by providing more direct experiences of the world of work, a clear view of the labour market and a good understanding of progression routes, we will inspire out pupils and help them understand where their choices will take them in the future.
Good career guidance helps inspire pupils towards further study and enables them to make informed decisions whenever choices are open to them. It helps them to understand enough about the world of work to know what skills they need to succeed. It is important for social mobility because it helps open pupils’ eyes to careers they may not have considered.
