We believe that effective careers guidance contributes to raising aspirations, improving
motivation and overcoming barriers to success. Macmillan Post 16 has a dedicated,
fully qualified careers practitioner, Ms Cook, who is on hand to provide information,
advice and guidance to students.
The Careers Team works closely with Heads of Year, SEN Department and teaching staff to ensure all students are aware of the facility and have inclusive access to it.
It has successful partnerships with local industry to offer students experience the world of work. These links are
developed further through assemblies, work experience, Next Steps Day, mock interviews, guest speakers and meaningful visits.
During 2019-20 the Careers Team provided 80 encounters with employers, giving students the opportunity to learn about work
and the skills required in the workplace*.

The same year students experience a global pandemic, we have reviewed our approach and now offer students UniFrog. All Post 16 students will be supported to use this platform, alongside existing guidance tools. UniFrog records student experience, as well as having links to career specific web sites, research advice and up to date information on the Labour Market.
