Careers Guidance

Careers learning at Flegg has three aims:

Self-development through careers and work related education
Finding out about careers and the world of work
The development of skills for employability

This is delivered in lessons where teachers make links between the learning in specific subjects and the wider world of work; through the PHSE curriculum and co-curricular form time provision. As part of our form time provision all students will have the opportunity to take part in careers sessions utilising the STEPS careers education pathway following the CDI’s career development framework. Students also have the opportunity to experience wider activities which include engagement with employers, work based education and training to give young people insights into the world of work, visits to and by colleges and universities, workplace visits, work shadowing, talks, taking part in challenges and competitions and mock interviews.

We also have a careers coordinator – Mrs Aldous who has a range of prospectuses within the library for student access.  She will also support with college applications for students.
