Build a world class careers system.
Ensure all young people get a programme of careers advice & guidance that is stable, structured & delivered by individuals with the right skills & experience.
Connect learning to the future; provide students with the knowledge & skills needed to make a successful transition to adult life; motivate young people by giving them a clearer idea of the routes to jobs & careers that they will find engaging & rewarding; raise the aspirations of all students.
Support social mobility by improving opportunities and informed decision making for all young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Prevent stereotyping in careers advice & guidance
Promote a shared understanding of what excellent careers provision looks like, & a consistent approach to achieving it.
The following should be considered when reading this document: It is assumed that students who are either short stay or are in years 10 or below will meet their Gatsby or CEIAG requirements with their home school although where possible those particular students will be encouraged to participate in our activities as an addition, with the information available to the home school. We consider ourselves to be responsible for students in year 11 that are long stay and all post 16.
