Preparation for employment is an integral part of everything we do at The Grange School. While qualifications remain very important they are by no means a sole consideration and focus. In an ever changing, fast paced world, we recognise that employability and work-readiness has become increasingly significant for employers.
In order to nurture our students and prepare them for their journey beyond school, we have created a Careers Education Programme which is integrated within our curriculum and uses the Gatsby Benchmarks as a guiding framework.
Our Careers Provision includes:
Our popular Careers Fair is now firmly set as an annual event in our school calendar. The event is supported by thirty five employers, training providers, colleges and universities.
Our Careers Advisor, Mrs Kittles, is responsible for providing impartial information, advice and guidance to our students.
Throughout the year we run a series of exciting events including enterprise competitions, mock interviews, mentoring sessions, workplace visits and social enterprise projects which involve employers and community organisations . These are all thoughtfully designed to provide numerous opportunities for students to develop the skills needed to excel in an ever changing world.
