We traditionally run a wide range of careers related events and activities throughout the year such as work experience week, mock interview days as well as college an 6th form taster days. Each school runs its own calendar of events and each differs slightly.
A monthly careers and events bulletin is circulated by tutors, emailed to parents/carers, and updated on each school’s Facebook page, screens and noticeboards.
Each school’s careers programme is assessed termly against Gatsby benchmarks in partnership with The Careers & Enterprise Company. We comply 100% with all 8 Gatsby benchmarks.
A document outlining our trust-wide careers programme can be found here.
