STAFF - all staff have access to a wide range of careers and work-related resources to support delivery in their subject areas and in line with the new Careers Strategy and Gatsby benchmark 4 - linking curriculum learning to careers. This includes subject lesson plans, posters which show a range of careers, plus access to the subject maps on the Careers Guidance Charts resource. There is also information within the staff handbook.
Resources for print or download can be found within the staff area/careers folder. Students can also use the Careers Library, either independently or as part of a lesson.
Teaching and support staff are regularly involved in supporting careers and enterprise activities during dedicated collapsed timetable events and also provide on-going support to students with regard to progression routes and choices after school.
Tutors in particular have an important role in helping to raise students' aspirations and providing information and advice about possible pathways after school. All staff should be able to signpost students to our careers and work-related resources and the Careers Leader. If you need any further information or support with careers learning, linked to your subject or in a pastoral role please contact me.
