Parents guide to National Careers Week
Classroom to career - Career newsletter for families, March 2021
At The Mandeville School we believe in building the ‘roots’ as well as the ‘shoots’ in each of our students. This means developing them so they can become responsible citizens as well as focusing on achieving their academic grades when they sit their examinations in Year 11 and Sixth Form. As part of the general PSHCE programme within the school every student has access to careers education and information.
We aim to ensure that our students have the confidence to make decisions that will impact positively on their lives and have all of the information they need to make decisions about their futures after school. As our students start making these vital choices in Year 9 with their GCSE options we begin our careers education in Year 7. Over the course of their time with us our students will have the opportunity to have guidance sessions, bespoke assemblies run by professionals, lessons taught during tutor time, careers fairs, trips out of school and support in writing application forms and university applications (UCAS). This year with the increase in online local content students have access to more than they previously might have had.
Throughout their time at The Mandeville School every student has the opportunity to access information through the taught curriculum time as well as outside of school hours.
Careers Programme - due to the changes in delivery and the careers agenda as part of a wider PSHCE programme this is currently in development.
