Provider Access Statement
We ensure a range of opportunities for our pupils to access a wide variety of events and work experience placements. These are integrated into our careers programme and curriculum throughout Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.
During Key Stage 4 (Preparing for Working Life Pathway) students will have the opportunity to start to think about their career pathway post-16, understand the importance of success for post-16 choices, know more about where they can go to find useful information. All students will cover the following key areas: post 16 options, what employers are looking for and the different types of employment on offer.
During Key Stage 5 (Experiencing Working Life Pathway) students will be given extensive Work Experience opportunities which will allow them to explore the World of Work in a supported environment. Students will be guided with their chosen career pathways, relevant qualifications and work experience to support them with this journey.
In conjunction with our extensive work experience programme, students will be given more information about what their post-16 options are
• identify where they are with their plans
• identify their skills, attributes and interests
• review changes in the world of work and the impact upon you
• understand money: how to make it and how to manage it
• applications and covering letters
• creating a curriculum vitae (CV)
• interview preparation
Students will have a one-to-one or small group careers discussions with Positive Steps, our external careers adviser.
