The careers guidance and education programme we deliver at The Corbet School is seen as a continuous process from Years 7 to 11.
At The Corbet School we aim to provide good careers guidance which supports the following:
- Connecting learning to the future
- Motivate pupils by giving them a clearer idea of the routes to jobs and careers that they will find engaging and rewarding
- Widening pupils’ horizons, challenge stereotypes and raise aspirations
- Providing pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to the next stage of their lives
- Supporting social mobility by improving opportunities for all pupils, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special educational needs and disabilities
To achieve the outcomes, careers guidance and education is delivered using a wide range of avenues:
- ‘Unifrog’’ – an award winning online careers platform, exploring careers information, routes and links.
- Dedicated careers area in the school library
- Personal Adviser in school once a week for individual consultations with pupils.
- Delivered through dedicated lessons within the PSHE programmes of study
- Speakers from a variety of industries
- Work Experience placements
- Post 16 support for Year 11’s: presentations, personal statements / CV and application support, and visits to Further Education Colleges taster days and workshops, assembly presentations and lunch time drop in sessions
Please see the Careers Schedule for further details.
How we measure and assess the impact of our careers programme:
- Using destination data
- Feedback from pupils
- Feedback from parents
- Feedback from teachers
- Feedback from employers.
