Glastry College is committed to ensuring that students have access to current and accurate Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) within the school curriculum and through other agencies. We aim to enable learners to develop essential employability skills and to ensure that students and their families are well supported in the key decisions they will be making at each Key Stage.
The focus of learning at Key Stage 3 is:
- Identifying and developing skills and qualities
- Introducing careers management and understanding its importance
- Developing an understanding of work in the local and global sector
- Examining examples of enterprise and entrepreneurship
Prior to making their subject choices in Year 10 and Year 12, students will have an individual interview with the careers team at this important transition stage.
At Key Stage 4 and Sixth Form our students:
- Develop knowledge and understanding of potential careers and their suitability for these
- Reflect on their individual skills, qualities and aspirations during dedicated careers classes
- Engage in one to one individual guidance interviews
- Participate in workshops led by visiting speakers from a diverse range of employment sectors
- Participate in a mock interview programme and work experience in Year 12
- In Sixth Form, students also reflect on their achievements to date and identify decision-making strategies needed to make clear, realistic and informed choices about their post-18 pathway. They do this by undertaking interview preparation, work experience and other work related activities.
Up to date Careers information is available in our designated Careers Hub and online for all year groups.
