Careers Programme

Careers Programme Information


We believe that all students should be supported, stretched and challenged in every lesson during their school-based education so that they can achieve and make choices to help them to live a happy, successful life.

Each child is unique and therefore needs individualised education, information, advice and guidance to enable them to make aspirational life choices so that they succeed and can meet with potential.

The TAS Curriculum allows for all pupils to individualise their timetables and choose qualifications dependant upon their chosen career paths.

All pupils will complete a Careers Action Planning Booklet which will take them through from key stage 2 to 4. This will help the pupils identify where they are, their current skillset and what they need to improve on to get to where they want to be.

Students receive 1:1 careers interview with an independent, qualified and highly experienced careers adviser – follow up appointments can be arranged to meet students’ needs.
