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 achieved the national Careers Quality Standard Award in October 2019.

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.

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.
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.
Our pupils experience a vast range of activities and competitions. Click here to view Careers and STEM LC+ overview to see the full range of activities offered.
