At St. Gabriel's students develop detailed knowledge and skills across the curriculum and, as a result, achieve well. They are readied for the next stage of education, employment or training both through their lessons and in-house CEAIG. Where relevant, they gain qualifications that allow them to go on to destinations that meet their interests, aspirations and the intention of their course of study.
In Year 7 pupils are introduced to the concept of careers. Pupils are provided with information on careers pathways through our personal development lessons and assemblies.
In Year 8 pupils build on their experiences in year 7and start to have encounters with different companies and organisation through careers cafes and a careers day.
In year 9 in order to support pupils options choices, pupils have a dedicated careers day, and careers lessons in personal development time. Additionally, they have a ‘future’ pathways evening and careers links are included in subject time. Furthermore, they have encounters with companies and organisations through careers cafes and careers week.
In year 10, pupils have arranged one to one meetings with a careers advisor. Pupils have a dedicated careers day and are invited to a minimum of 3 careers encounters. Pupils are provided with up to date information on the labour market.
In year 11, pupils are encourage to link their GCSE to careers. Pupils are provided with one to one support with a careers advisor. Pupils are provided with CV and college and apprenticeship application support. Pupils attend assemblies with FE providers in Bury. Pupils have a mock interview evening after a mock job application. This is supplemented with a future pathways evening.
We measure our impact through destination data and feedback from various stakeholders.
**Please note, during this unprecedented time, we have chosen to delay the careers cafes until later in the academic year. Post 16 provisions are still sharing their resources with us, which we share with our Year 11 students through their personal development lessons. We are also still offering face to face independent careers interviews for Year 11 and a careers drop in session with an independent advisor. These are socially distanced in a well ventilated room.
As soon as we feel it is safe to do so, we will resume the employer encounters through our career cafes and career days.
