Careers and Post 16

 

At Churchill we view careers guidance as an integral part of our work.  It appears as a discrete subject on all class timetables. The schools careers programme appears as a document to the right of this page and can be accessed by students, parents, teachers and employers. The progress that pupils make as part of our careers programme, is monitored regularly and used to inform further work. 

 

Our vision is to develop a learning community that broadens horizons and raises aspirations through meaningful and powerful links and contact with local employers and local businesses.  Learners will develop and apply a range of employability skills throughout their time in school and sixth form and develop knowledge and research skills to ensure future pathways are fully informed and allow a clear sense of direction.
