Catholic Secondary School

Investors In Careers school has been awarded the Investor in Careers Award. This award recognises the hard work and determination of all staff in ensuring that the highest quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is being delivered to all students within the school.

The ‘Investor in Careers’ mark is a nationally recognised quality standard that shows we are educating and providing guidance related to pupils’ futures.  We were assessed over our ability to inform pupils about the wealth of careers in the world and their future options after school. We received high praise across the school and were able to demonstrate that we have a comprehensive careers programme for all pupils. The school was showcased at a panel presentation as a leading provider of careers education and ten pupils successfully spoke to an expert about their experiences.

Very few schools achieve this high accolade and we are working hard to ensure we maintain these high standards.  We were commended for our deep learning days, school policy, college links, mock interview evening, STEM opportunities as well as our whole school approach. The pupils who met with the assessor explained how the school was helping them become confident and independent young adults who are prepared to go on to college or work placements after they leave school.

We will continue to strive to improve and demonstrate our commitment to providing high quality, independent and personalised careers education for all pupils, preparing them for the demands of adult life.
