CAREERS EDUCATION, INFORMATION AND GUIDANCE

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE

Careers Education, Information and Guidance is at the heart of the curriculum in St. Benedict’s College. Students are guided to make well informed and positive choices regarding their education and future careers. In our College students are encouraged to build upon their existing skills and to understand the wide range of transferrable skills required for employment. Labour Market Information is a key focus in Careers Education and Skills in Demand are used to highlight skills shortages and areas for employment growth. All students at Key Stage 3 receive careers guidance as part of the Employability strand of Learning for Life and Work. At Key Stage 4 all students receive timetabled careers lessons to ensure that they are well prepared for their Post 16 Pathways.

OUR STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO:

  • A range of software packages and web based careers

resources.

 

  • Careers advice and guidance from a Careers Advisor in Year

10 and one to one interviews in Year 12 with follow up

sessions if required.

 

  • Careers Advisors are made available to students and parents

at Year 10 and 12 Parents’Meetings.

 

  • All Year 11’s participate in a one week work related learning

programme.

 

  • Year 12 students have the opportunity to experience an

Interview Skills Day. This involves completing application

forms, aptitude tests and engaging in one on one interviews

with business advisors.

 

  • Key Stage 3 and 4 students participate in Young Enterprise

workshops throughout the year.

 

  • Key Stage 4 students attend Careers Fairs, Open Days and

benefit from attendance at a variety of presentations from

Post 16 providers with which the College has maintained

excellent links.
