Careers Guidance

Careers Guidance

Every pupil should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a careers adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all pupils but should be timed to meet their individual needs.

Every pupil should have at least one such interview by the age of 16, and the opportunity for a further interview by the age of 18. Gatsby Benchmark 8

We offer all students the opportunity  to meet with a qualified Careers Advisor for independent careers advice. These are typically 30-40 minute interviews with each year 11 student. During these interviews, students will be encouraged to talk about their ambitions. The careers advisor can help students understand what they need to achieve these goals. Our advisors can also help with apprenticeship applications.

Each student will receive a summary of what was discussed so they can refer back to it as they make the choices for their intended destinations when they leave Coleridge. This also helps us identify students who may need extra support.

Labour Market Information

Every pupil, and their parents, should have access to good-quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. They will need the support of an informed adviser to make best use of available information.

  • By the age of 14, all pupils should have accessed and used information about career paths and the labour market to inform their own decisions on study options.
  • Parents should be encouraged to access and use information about labour markets and future study options to inform their support to their children.
