At TWGGS we are committed to providing an outstanding programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance activities that satisfy national requirements and enable us to address the career development needs of all our pupils, as well as raising the profile of careers education across the whole community.
We are working towards gaining The Quality in Careers Standard taking into account the Gatsby Benchmarks and the DfE statutory guidance. Our Enterprise Adviser and our careers link governor work closely with the school, supported by the Careers and Enterprise Company, to provide strategic support, bringing their business experience and professional networks to help develop and implement an effective strategy that makes opportunities with local employers an important part of our pupils' education.
All pupils in Years 8 to Upper Sixth are given their full entitlement of information about university, technical education and apprenticeships and employment opportunities within the curriculum, Enterprise Days, PSHE sessions, school trips and visits, and lunch time and evening talks.
The careers programme is attached as an appendix to the careers policy and may be found on the policies section of the website. The policy is reviewed and updated every three years, or as necessary.
Pupils and staff members are asked to give feedback on any events which have taken place, and the following year’s activities are planned taking their comments, and any parental comments, into account.
Our Careers Leader is Miss Jane Parkinson, Deputy Headteacher. Pupils are welcome to visit the Careers Room at any time, and speak to Mrs Vallely, the Careers Coordinator for information or advice. Anyone is welcome to contact Mrs Vallely by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Independent Careers Adviser is Mrs Bridget Elinson, who is in school once a week. Any pupil who would like to chat to her should contact Mrs Vallely to make an appointment.
Headteacher Linda Wybar
