Each academic year we welcome pupils to apply to become a member of their school Careers Council. The Careers Council is a group of pupils from years 7-11 who meet at least once each half term to look at the careers provision in their school and contribute to planning and reviewing events to support all pupils to be aspirational in their career plans and future working lives
Our Careers Council will encourage our pupils to get more involved with careers and also play a part in shaping what we do. The Careers Council members will meet and look at a wide variety of things such as the careers curriculum, help plan careers events, maintain careers displays around the school and also link directly with employers when they visit the school. They will also work with their year group and form tutors to provide information and get feedback from the pupils in all year groups.
