At GSHS we are committed to giving students a clear programme of unbiased, impartial and up to date CIAG from school and other agencies. The programme is designed to ensure that students are equipped with the advice and guidance to help them realise their full potential.
Students and the decisions they make about their careers, will be treated with respect regardless of ability, age, sex, religion or cultural background.
Information and guidance is provided through a variety of activities. Students will be will be offered support and guidance when it is needed. This includes access to an independent and impartial Careers Advisor. Career guidance interviews are designed to help students talk about their career aspirations and to give them the research skills to help them make informed decisions. There is a Careers Library in the Learning Resource Centre to help students with their independent research. There is also a Careers notice board which is updated fortnightly with available apprenticeships. It has information also about university open days and industry work experience opportunities, competitions and summer schools.
From Year 7, all of our students follow a programme which helps them to understand the world of work. We make sure that all of our students have access to the appropriate advice about post 16 and post 18 opportunities. Across all of the key stages, students can access meetings and events which will help them with their career planning decisions.
