From year 8, employability is included in the curriculum for all students.  Additional programmes are provided by Sentinus, by Young Enterprise, by Amazing Brains, buy Eye4Education and by W5.  A focus on Employability is worked into the ICT curriculum throughout KS3.

From year 10, students begin to put together their personal career profile. They meet the college careers officer, and take part in self-assessment and careers research so that they can select their GCSE subjects with confidence.  Our partnership with BE Aerospace provides support for our students in their enterprise module.

Careers work in years 11 and 12 culminates in a work shadowing opportunity, and personal interviews with our careers officer in order to select Advanced level courses or other careers opportunities.

In sixth form, our students all take part in work experience, and undertake a personalised careers programme. Students visit universities and colleges and take part in interview training ahead of their UCAS applications. Students have opportunities to take part in voluntary work, and the college prefect and intern system.

All our students take part in Careers Week in March, when we host visits from universities and employers to inspire students' choices.  Our new CareersBlog keeps students up to date with fresh information and ideas.

A wide range of careers self-assessment programmes and research materials is available to students through our college intranet and our website. Our new careers base is now availble to all students at the college library.

We capitalise on the wide range of careers our OldScholars have undertaken, and whenever possible, we invite OldScholars to come in to speak to current students.
