Policies and Curriculum

Our Careers Curriculum

Our careers curriculum is designed to ensure our pupils' skills and knowledge progress from phase 1 to phase 4, and it is differentiated to cater for all our pathways. It has been written taking into account the Career Development Institute's primary and secondary frameworks, Preparing for Adulthood objectives and the Young Money Financial Education framework. Within the curriculum, we use the Skills Builders framework to teach transferable skills.

Since careers education is so broad, there is a lot of overlap with other subjects, particularly topic, PHSE and travel training, and we try to make the most of the cross-curricular opportunities this provides.

Here are some examples of our current curriculum.

Our Careers Provision

Our careers provision is designed to ensure we comply with the Gatsby Benchmarks, which are part of the government's statutory careers guidance for schools:

1. A stable careers programme
2. Learning from career and labour market information
3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
5. Encounters with employers and employees
6. Experiences of workplaces
7. Encounters with further and higher education
8. Personal guidance


Work experience placements are sourced based on the D2N2 growth sectors and (in phase 4) personal preference where possible.
