Careers Information and Guidance

Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance is a vital part of the education of our pupils here at Liverpool College. It fills a large strand within our LC+ Curriculum. We are committed to delivering a full Careers Programme to fulfil the 2018 Government’s Careers Strategy and we work towards fulfilling all the criteria within the Gatsby Benchmarks and the Careers Development Institute Framework for Careers, Employer and Enterprise Education. We work in partnership with the Careers and Enterprise Company and aim to achieve the Careers Quality Standard Award in September 2018.

The Delivery of Careers Education and Guidance

NSI and Careers

The main vehicle for the delivery of our programme is through our NSI and Careers lessons, which take place on a fortnightly basis.

Year 7, Year 8, Year 9, Year 10, Year 11, Year 12, Year 13

Employer Masterclasses

Our pupils experience many meaningful Employer encounters. A wide variety of Employers are invited to deliver Masterclasses or workshops. Interested pupils are invited to attend these sessions. Pupils are identified from the results of a pupil survey which highlights their areas of interest.

MORRISBY ONLINE and Individual Careers Interviews

Liverpool College has invested in Morrisby online as we feel the site provides sophisticated testing and profiles to initiate thinking and to form a basis for conversation during individual careers interviews provided by the College.

The Morrisby Organisation also offers additional careers interviews (at a cost) for those parents who feel that would like their children to have additional careers guidance. For further information please contact Mrs H Cassidy This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. These additional Interviews will be provided free of charge for our Pupil Premium pupils.

Morrisby Online also provides detailed Labour Market Information (LMI) and an area where pupils can record their progress in school, activities, skills and qualities, volunteering and work experience.
