Careers and Post-16 Progression
We recognise that young people are making career decisions about their futures in education, training and work in a challenging and complex environment. It is more important than ever that they receive high quality, impartial Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG). It is our goal to provide this for all our students throughout their time at Tomlinscote.
Our Careers education and work-related learning programme aims to give students the knowledge, understanding and skills to plan and manage their progression through all stages of learning and into working life. We support all students with their choices at each transition point at Tomlinscote and offer impartial information, advice and guidance about future options and pathways available to them.
Through both one to one and group guidance sessions we help students to focus on:
- Self-Development (helping students to understand themselves, recognise their potential and how they can shape their future)
- Career Exploration (helping students to investigate opportunities in learning and work and how to use information effectively)
- Career Management (helping students to plan, make decisions and develop a broad range of skills enabling them to manage their own careers and prepare themselves for employment and lifelong learning)
We have an excellent Careers and work-related learning resource area in our Learning Centre and we recommend a range of Careers websites for students to access. These resources provide students with up to date information about the variety of different Career pathways (technical, vocational and academic) beyond Tomlinscote, such as apprenticeships, college, university and employment with ongoing training.
Tomlinscote has a strong track record of commitment and investment in Careers education and work-related learning. We have excellent relationships with the Careers and Enterprise Company as well as a range of local employers, all of whom provide real world connections and support to our students throughout Years 7-11. Tomlinscote runs a comprehensive programme of specific activities designed to inspire, inform and engage our students. Please see our plan below for details of these activities in each year group.
