The Careers Education & Guidance Programmes make a major contribution in preparing young people for opportunities, responsibilities and experience of life. They help young people make decisions and manage transitions as students and workers. It is vital that all 14-19-year-old students who attend our school have the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices and achieve economic well being in later life.
A young person’s career reflects the progress they make in learning and work. It is part of the vision and mission of the school that all students need a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 pathways that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers, sustain employability and achieve personal and economic well-being throughout their lives.
