Every pupil is given opportunities for careers guidance with an external Level 6 Careers Advisor. 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 50 minute interviews with each student in either Year 10 or Year 11. During these interviews, students will be encouraged to talk about their ambitions. The Careers Advisor will then identify possible next steps (e.g. Further Education or Apprenticeships).
Students will receive a summary of their discussion under the Teacher Items section of their Unifrog locker. This is a document the student can refer back to as they make their choices for when they leave Coleridge. Additional support is offered to students as required.
