Careers Provision

Careers education is a key preparation for students moving on from Wolgarston. We want to create a culture of high aspiration, self-belief and ambition free of stereotypes or limitations based on expectations. We look to develop learners view of themselves and how they might fit into the world of work or the next level of education removing barriers to achieving their goals. We want to provide opportunities to explore ideas and in some cases eliminate them from their thinking through experience or reflection.

To bring this about we have a careers programme through which we aim to provide:

  • direct experience of the workplace,
  • exposure to a variety of employers,
  • information about the labour market,
  • timely information at key points in the decision making process in Year 9, Year 11 and 6th Form.
  • Independent careers advice as required,
  • Preparation for employment,
  • Curriculum links to careers by subject specialists,
  • Targeted guidance regarding options and choices at key points in student’s academic life.
