Parents and carers: Encourage  your child to talk to friends and family about their career/jobs. Hearing the story from ‘when they left school – present day’ is important in helping young people know how/why people made the choices they did (or didn’t – some of their friends and family may feel they didn’t have many choices when they left school.) This can help your child to see the importance of knowing what is available, what you will have to work hard for in order to achieve and what can happen if you just ‘let life happen to you’.

 
At Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School every teacher is a teacher of careers. Every conversation and interaction prepares our students for their future. Careers education is an integral part of our Personal Development curriculum as well as being fully embedded into our subject curriculum.  Students receive an all-encompassing, inspiring careers programme which fully prepares them for a successful post 16 transition and future in their chosen career. Study routes, skills and careers knowledge are developed and deepened throughout their time in school to give our students the best possible outcomes when they leave us at 16.  We will use The Eight Gatsby Charitable Foundation Benchmarks to support the delivery of our careers provision: 
  • Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School will deliver a stable careers programme

The benchmarks support us in delivering an unbiased careers education using external agencies, one that is engaging and supports all our students in securing a successful future.  

All students use STARTprofile, an online careers platform which enables students to gain a personalised career programme during their time here. Careers is delivered through form time, personal development lessons, subjects, events and assemblies. Through our career clusters programme students  select their top three careers for the year and receive additional information on these. This is delivered by face to face contact and/or via Teams.  Careers is fully embedded into the curriculum and supports our schools aims of High Expectations, High Aspirations and High Standards you will succeed.   Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School continually assesses and measures the impact of our Careers Programme on our students. Sessions/workshops are evaluated by visitors, teacher and students and adaptations are made if needed to. This will ensure a high quality CEIAG programme for all our students.
