Careers - Guidance for Pupils
Careers Information and Guidance for Pupils
It is the policy of this College that all pupils should be given the opportunity to:
Know and understand themselves better and develop their capabilities
Investigate education, training and career opportunities
Implement their career plans by making informed choices, in a supportive atmosphere, about their own continuing education and training.

In Year 7-13 all pupils are expected to use Careerpilot to carry out career profiling and career research. In addition pupils should use the Log in facility to record skills and qualities, progress and targets, activities undertaken and volunteering and work experience.
The main two websites that are very useful to our pupils are:
Success at Schools. www.successatschool.org
National Careers Service helpline for students
National Careers Service free helpline – 0800 100 900 - is open from 8am to 10pm every day and you are more than welcome to get in touch with trained advisers, to ask any questions you may have about your child’s education or career opportunities. Callers to the helpline will have direct access to experienced careers advisers who can advise on all the different options available to them, including A levels, GCSEs, BTECs, apprenticeships and other vocational options. Other support will be available on topics such as clearing, university, gap years, moving away from home and re-sits.
The National Careers Service is available for anyone aged 13+ providing advice and information on a range of topics including careers, education, employment and training/apprenticeships.
The National Careers website has a range of contact channels which are accessible to all; they offer a free online chat with an adviser, you can send an email, text or arrange a call-back and they also have minicom (for customers who are deaf or have hearing difficulties).
Your child can complete a free Skills Health Check test through our website which will suggest specific job sectors they may be suited to, based on their skills and strengths.
They can also research their career ideas using our popular job profile.
