Introduction

Impartial and personalised careers advice to support pupils to make well informed and realistic decisions on all careers options. Ensuring they achieve their ambition and reach their full potential.

At Fallibroome we see Careers Education and Guidance (CEG) as an essential element within the curriculum.  All our students have an entitlement to an appropriate programme of provision, to help them develop and use the knowledge and skills they need to make successful choices, manage transitions in learning and move into a career of their choice. We also believe that modern careers guidance is as much about inspiration and aspiration as it is about advice.

At the core of our CEG offer is the opportunity for students to have face-to-face careers interviews with our in-house and completely independent Careers Advisor. This usually happens during Key Stage 4 within our dedicated careers office. However, through using a monitoring process and strong pastoral system we identify any students in need of earlier intervention and act accordingly.

Since the Governments introduction of ‘Raising the Age of Participation’, all students are now required to remain in education or training up to their 18th birthday. We therefore ensure that students are provided with information, advice and guidance on all post-16 options to help make well informed decisions about the future.

Our Careers Advisor is also available to meet with parents / guardians on an individual basis as needed.  The school has a specialist Careers Library located in room D5 with up to date publications and current local college prospectuses.

The CEG is linked closely with the schools Work Related Learning programme (webpage link) to help prepare the students for their future education and career choices.

We have close links with many local employers and believe that by working together we can inspire young people about the world of work, opening their eyes to a range of learning and career opportunities that are available to them.
