The School embeds careers into the curriculum via each subject head and through all subject departments.  All subject heads teach to their proposed careers curriculum and this is available to view by department teachers within the Careers and Community in-house shared teaching folder.  Included within teaching plans, are; links to careers and employment; career posters (all on display around the School); links to more specialized teaching lesson plans;  details of proposed trips as well as details of proposed guest speakers.  This information is reviewed annually via an internal careers audit and is subject to Careers Governor monitoring.  Surveys are sent to students via Morrisby, the careers platform used by Key Stage 3-5 students at Gildredge House.  Parents have access to a range of career links via the website and via newsletters and emails sent to parents, daily, weekly and termly.

In addition to this, our CEIAG provision is supported by a host of other career-related events that our young people receive throughout the year. Examples of these include: Career fairs, mock interviews, focused assemblies and taster days to local colleges and universities. Each year group has a dedicated careers day in which employers are invited to participate.
