Careers Programme

We deliver the above by providing pupils with a variety of careers activities and experiences relevant to their stage of development — known as the careers programme. This planned programme of impartial careers information, advice and guidance is conducted with the help of internal staff, external professional providers, and institutes such as universities, colleges and business representatives. Activities range from in-house activities where guest speakers and exhibitors are invited, to trips outside of school, to 1:1 careers interviews to name a few.

We have used empirical research and evidence taken from the Department of Education’s paper: “Careers strategy: making the most of everyone’s skills and talents” (Dec, 2017), the Government paper: “Careers guidance and access for education and training providers: Statutory guidance for schools on providing careers guidance” (Jan, 2018), the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks and the Baker Clause to inform and develop our careers programme to make it  relevant, impartial , and robust and compliant with Ofsted and statutory regulations.

We assess the impact of our careers guidance with the pupils in their destination after finishing at Blessed Thomas Holford.
