Careers Programme Information
Corfe Hills School holds the prestigious award of 'Investors in Careers' because we believe that all students should be provided with a planned, impartial programme of career education and guidance that provides them with the skills and knowledge to make appropriate decisions and plan their career routes.
Careers Education is defined as:
Helping young people develop the knowledge and skills they need to make successful choices, manage transitions in learning and move into work.
Careers Guidance is defined as:
Enabling young people to use the knowledge and skills they develop to make the decisions about learning and work that are right for them.
The school will make every effort to provide:
- impartial advice and guidance for all and a referral for specialist support when that is identified
- information about the full range of learning opportunities and we will ensure that this is available in a range of formats so that it is accessible to all
- ongoing support for all
- a planned, progressive programme of careers education activities, in line with statutory requirements.
