Careers Information, Advice & Guidance
At Alderman Peel High School we provide all students with a Careers Education Programme delivered through group sessions, days off timetable and targeted assemblies. We invite employers and training providers in to school and take students out to careers fairs, local colleges and universities – where they can obtain up to date information on the range of options available to them. We recognise the importance of preparing students for life and helping them to develop the key skills of: communication, application of number, team work, using initiative, being resilient and open to change.
In Year 9 students are supported with option choices for key stage 4 and in years 11 students are offered guidance to help select the most appropriate route – whether it is to stay in education or to progress into employment or apprenticeships.
We have a careers room within our school Learning Resource Centre (LRC) with a range of careers information and college/university prospectuses which our students can access during LRC opening times. There is also a careers notice board in the corridor (opposite Mr. Tawana’s office) which has information on college open evenings, apprenticeship vacancies as well as general careers information.
Every November the school invites all colleges, sixth forms, independent sixth forms, apprenticeship providers, local employers, parent/carers and students to our Careers Convention. At the Careers Convention parent/carers/students can glean up-to-date information on careers in one evening and speak personally with different providers.
Our Careers Adviser Mrs Emma Clayton sees all Years 8-11 SEND students, Looked After Children, Pupil Premium and any other student being at risk of Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).
If you feel your son/daughter would benefit from a 1:1 appointment with Mrs. Clayton and is in Years 8-11 then please contact Mr. Tawana (Assistant Headteacher) on firstname.lastname@example.org
