Opportunities for access

A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carer. This includes Year 12 and Year 11 Careers Conventions, a Year 8 event 'WOW 360' (World of Work), work experience provision in Years 10 and 12, Takeover Days in Years 9 and 7 and 6th Form mentoring. Alongside this, we are part of a local network group comprising of Careers Leads and other interested parties, who work together on careers initiatives and delivery including area wide Generic and Industry themed careers events, which we promote to our pupils and parents in our bulletin. Provider access where linked to the aims and focus of these events is welcomed and can be arranged by contacting our Careers Lead. On top of these events we hold assemblies which sometimes focus on careers and progression routes, and we deliver some Careers Education lessons within our Personal Development provision. Access to these is through our Careers Lead.

At our events we will endeavour to make providers’ experience and opportunities as fulfilling as possible, which includes making guests feel welcome and valued, providing access to the most appropriate age group/s or targeted groups of pupils and providing the equipment required where possible, e.g. access to a suitable space (hall/classrooms), audio/visual equipment and the internet. Please contact the Careers Lead to discuss specific premises and facilities requirements for your event. The Careers Lead will also agree with you in advance materials that you can bring to the event that can be left for students to read (e.g. prospectuses and handouts).

Details of career opportunities and progression routes are also publicised in our weekly bulletin. To arrange for an opportunity to appear in the bulletin please contact our Careers Lead.
