The Careers department provides all students with access to information advice and guidance to help students make realistic choices to reach their goals. We aim to guide students to reach their full potential.
At Key Stage 3 careers education is taught through form time activities and the student development days and aims to develop knowledge of work, careers and the next steps for students. We are available for advice during the Year 9 Options process.
At Key Stage 4 careers education is provided in two ways.
The first method is through student development days, developing knowledge and understanding of future plans, and what it is like in the work place.
The second is through the student development lessons, where they will become aware of searching for courses and jobs, the application processes and interview techniques. Our Careers Adviser is available on and after GCSE results day to assist our students with their progression.
At Key Stage 5 careers education runs in conjunction with the Sixth Form team. Students are given guidance on UCAS applications, choosing appropriate Universities, Colleges of FE, and places of work. Students have access to specialist external advisors, form tutors, the Sixth Form team and the Careers team to receive advice on their future after Poynton High School.
There are Careers fairs, Industry Insight Events, Further Education fairs, and a ‘Life Beyond Poynton Day’. All students will also be able to receive careers advice after A level results. Students looking for employment after Sixth Form will also be able to join the Employ programme for further support in applications (see below for further details).
