Redruth School, Cornwall

At Redruth School, we are proud of the way we help our students through the process of deciding what direction they take after finishing school. Whether it is into further education, training or employment we provide impartial guidance and advice. We involve many outside agencies, including colleges, higher education and employers across both KS3 and KS4. This starts in Year 8 when the students select their options, they are provided with information on making the right choices depending on their pathway. Year 10 and Year 11 are key decision years for our students so it is important that we provide access to all the opportunities open to them to help make the decision.

Our Careers Leader is Mrs Beth Haslam. If you have any queries surrounding careers, higher education or work experience please contact her in the chat facility next to the video player.

Examples of what takes place in Key Stage 4 are the following:

  • Students experience taster days of post 16 courses at Cornwall College and Truro College
  • Every Year 10 student undertakes a week’s work experience in their chosen workplace
  • Selected students travel to the National Apprenticeship Show
  • Every student in Year 11 has support from school staff, local employers, or representatives of Next Steps South West to draft their own CV and covering letter
  • Every student in Year 11 takes part in a 1-1 interview with either a local employer, a representative of Next Steps South West or Careers Ambassadors to discuss their pathways post 16 and where necessary support the writing of CVs and cover letters.
  • We have termly assemblies designed to inspire students and inform them of the breadth of opportunities open to them


The Compass Careers Benchmark is a national benchmark for schools to self-assess the quality of their career opportunities, work experience and their ability to provide independent information and guidance for post 16 choices. Please click the link to see our results against the national average.

Our students have to undertake a week’s work experience in Year 10 in July. They have the opportunity to learn new skills in all types of workplaces, with the aim of positive and significant impact on their career development. They will also learn transferable skills which are sought after by employers. This is a critical opportunity to gain a quality reference from a non-educational perspective and build their CV with experiences to talk about in interviews.

Examples of past placements have been the following:

  • Medical program
  • Building assistant
  • Veterinary assistants
  • Software assistant
  • Hairdressers
  • Legal assistant
  • Graphic Designers
  • Mechanics
  • Sales assistants
  • Care assistants
  • Chef’s assistants
  • Office Assistants
