CAREERS EDUCATION AND GUIDANCE
At St. Anne’s we are committed to providing excellent impartial Careers Education and Guidance to our students. Careers Education and Guidance promotes the skills and understanding that are necessary for our students to make informed decisions about the choices that they face at each stage of their career development. Students from year 8 to year 13 are offered impartial careers guidance through Mrs Lee, our Careers Advisor.
Parents are also welcome to make an appointment to see Mrs Lee regarding their daughter’s Higher Education and Career choices.
The school’s provision prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Our programme aims to raise self-awareness, knowledge and confidence through a range of different activities and opportunities which will enable our students to make informed decisions for their future choices in the work place, higher education or training.
We aim to raise the aspirations of our students so that they can have the highest possible expectations of themselves and their future careers.
Please see below for draft versions of our Careers Policy & Careers Guidance Action Plan, following recent Government updates:
Although Work Experience is not arranged through the school, we encourage our students in KS4 and KS5 to find work placements during the school holidays. The aim is to help give them a better understanding of, and be better prepared for, life in the adult workplace. Students can request to meet with Mrs Lee who will discuss what type of work experience would be beneficial according to each student’s aspirations and choices. Students are encouraged to research what type of work experience would suit them and further guidance will be offered on how to contact employers for work placements.
