Careers & Work Experience
Welcome to the careers information and work experience page. We recognise the importance of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and ensure that throughout the year, students have opportunities to engage positively with their futures, both in terms of increasing expectations and exploring the best routes into the careers that interest them. In line with the Department for Education guidance, we have a coordinated programme of careers support designed around the Gatsby Benchmarks and CDI Framework to offer a coherent programme embedded within school structures. A summary of our CEIAG programme, student entitlements and policy access statement can be viewed using the relevant links on this page.
Evaluation of our programme is demonstrated through the school maintaining the Investors in Careers Award, given in recognition of our commitment to CEIAG, and our destination data providing comparable information on the school’s success. Details on our destinations are available on the WG6 website.
Mrs Martin, firstname.lastname@example.org, coordinates the career programme, with support from Mr Sexton, who is a member of the senior leadership team. Our CEIAG programme and related information is reviewed annually, however information may be revised throughout the year to reflect new regulations. The date of the next review is January 2020.
We value input from parent/carers, businesses or former students so if you are willing to contribute to our careers programme please email the school at email@example.com

We encourage students to be ambitious in their post-18 choices and to develop their understanding of the different academic and career pathways. Students often benefit from having their horizons broadened in terms of their academic potential and we offer a specific pathway that allows students to explore the Oxford and Cambridge Universities application process. This includes workshops from visiting academic staff, preparation for some of the admissions tests, and specialist guidance on the completion of personal statements.
