Career Education Programme
Our careers education programme is a comprehensive source of information that illustrates all of the careers education information advice and guidance opportunities that students can expect to experience throughout the academic year.
This is a whole college approach made possible by the input of all staff including, vocational tutors, English and maths tutors, student services team members and support staff.
This has been produced in response to recent Department for Education statutory requirement to nationally provide more effective careers education information and guidance for our young people.
The objectives of the programme are to enable young people to progress to the next vocational qualification level or to a positive destination such as apprenticeship, higher education or employment and training.
We welcome feedback from parents and students and would encourage you to contact us by as follows:
