    Careers Education, Advice, Information and Guidance at Trinity School

    Careers Education, Advice, Information and Guidance is an important part of a student’s education at Trinity School.  The work of work and the local labour market are evolving and we strive to ensure students are given the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills and experiences that will enable them to be successful in their chosen careers. 

    Students receive the opportunity to develop their understanding of careers and the future pathways best suited to them through small group or 1-to-1 meetings with our careers adviser from Prospects. 

    During careers meetings, assemblies and other careers learning opportunities students are made aware of open days and events appropriate to their education phase.  Students are also informed and given the opportunity to attend external careers events including Skills London, local provider open days and UCAS careers fairs.  Careers is also addressed across the curriculum in a holistic way, with individual subjects supporting students on linked progression pathways, key and transferable skills and labour market information.

    Our students progress into a range of different pathways after Year 11 or Year 13 including Sixth Form, College, University or Apprenticeships.  They are supported with their applications and decision making by a wide range of staff.

    Trinity School recognises the importance of learning about employability and Year 12 students are supported to undertake a work experience placement with local or city based employers.  This enables them to get a better understanding of professional work environment and working life as well as improving their decision making about their future careers.

     

    Provider Access Policy

    This policy sets out our arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.  This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

    Pupil entitlement

    All pupils in years 8-13 are entitled:

    ·         to find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of educational and training options available at each transition point;

    ·         to hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events;

    ·         to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

    Management of provider access requests

    A provider wishing to request access should contact Emma Honey, Director of CEAIG on 01322 441371 or via email to ehoney@trinity.bexley.sch.uk

    Opportunities for access

    A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carers where students will learn about the alternative pathways available to them in the future.

    Please speak to the Director of CEAIG to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.

    Premises and Facilities

    The school will make the main hall, classrooms or a private meeting room available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity.  The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations.  This will be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Direct of CEAIG or the member of staff responsible for that activity.

    Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature at the Careers Resource Centre, which is managed by the Director of CEAIG and school librarian.  The Resource Centre is available to all students at break and lunch times as well as after school.
