Work-related Learning Coordinator: Mrs H Nicholls
Careers education and guidance begins in Year 7 at Sandhurst and is mapped against the ACEG Framework for careers and work-related education, providing our students with a careers programme that flows through each progression stage. Delivered through citizenship and a number of extra- curricular activities we aim to support student’s transition into KS4, post 16 and higher education.
We are proud to hold the ‘Investors in Careers’ award, 2015 – 2018.
Events | 2016/17
During the school year there will be a number of opportunities for groups of students to get involved with different activities and events. Our aim is to equip our young people with the knowledge and skills needed post 16 and beyond. Included in our delivery this year will be:
Bracknell Forest Careers Event
A unique opportunity for all of our Year 11 to meet local & national employers and providers of apprenticeships and further education.
Our 6th Form students are fully encouraged to attend this superb event at the NEC. Host to some of the world’s most innovative employers, apprenticeship and education providers, World Skills is a showstopper for its delivery of information, advice and guidance.
AIM Apprenticeship workshops | World of STEM in association with CA, British Airways and O2 | CGI presentation |Futures Day at Farnborough Air Show | Big Bang Science Fair | Think Big with O2 | The Public Service Show | The National Apprenticeship Event | STEM working lunches | Higher Education Show
Specialist, impartial careers advice is available to all KS4 & 5 students. Referrals can be made by a tutor or students can ask for an appointment. Parents can also refer their son/daughter to Adviza by calling Mrs. Nicholls, Work-related Learning Coordinator on: 01344 775678. Our PA, Claire Thomas, will be available every Wednesday, by appointment only. Claire will also be available at Year 9, 10, 11 & Sixth Form subject evenings to speak with students and parents.
SDC (Sandhurst Digital Campus)
Please take some time to explore the Careers Education page on SDC. There are some really useful and important links to a number of sites that will give students and parents up to date information from moving up into KS4 and beyond:
UCAS | CV writing | Student loans | Open days | The labour market | Interview skills | Barclays life skills | British safety council | Careers box | Post16 routes Apprenticeships | part-time jobs | Adviza
At Sandhurst we feel it is important for students to be engaged in the design, delivery and evaluation of information, advice and guidance provision. We welcome any feedback from students and encourage our young people to offer their views and opinions. All feedback and ideas should be given to Mrs. Nicholls.
Introduced in the spring term to Year 10, ‘Moving On’ magazine will continue to play a significant part in our student’s careers education and we hope that students and parents alike will spend some time looking through each edition.
