Careers Support

Year 11 Careers support

As Year 11, you have either gained a place in further or higher education for September, be still waiting to hear about an interview or still in the process of sorting out a place.  As a school, we have thought about what further support and help we can offer you at this challenging time.  Attached below is a table of tasks that have been developed to help you meet some of the potential hurdles you are likely to face in the future.  These tasks link in with the requirements from the Gatsby Benchmarks; 4 (linking curriculum learning to careers), 3 (Addressing the need of each pupil) and 8 (Encounters with further and higher education), which all schools should aim to meet by the end of this year. 

The information has been broken down into task with suggested dates to complete the work to keep you on track.  Each task has the relevant resources provided for you to be able to successfully complete it at home.  There is also information to support, inform and answer any questions you might have, as well as suggested websites for both parents/carers and students.  The websites contain a wealth of information and will be useful for all to look through at home.  If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school.
