Careers advice is provided in-house at The Compass by our Head of Careers Mrs Paula Sone to ensure that students are fully informed about their choices post-16 and beyond.

Students are introduced to careers in their PSHE lessons in Year 7, this is then developed across the year groups during PSHE lessons and one of activities such as the Speed Careers event in Year 8 and Considering Your Options in Year 10.

By the end of Year 11, all students experience a career planning meeting to ensure that their chosen pathways are appropriate and match their individual needs.

Work experience after GCSE final exams is encouraged and endorsed by the school but should be organised by the student. The managed learning environment, Frog, provides a wealth of information about destinations for students of all abilities. The Compass provides the students with access to a range of platforms to match suitable careers to personal profiles and also provide information on skills sets, personal qualities and training routes to specific employment. Visit The Compass for more information.
