Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

Click here to view our Learn Live school careers page, where you can view options for Year 9 and different careers.

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’.


We aim to deliver a careers system that will help young people to choose the career which is right for them. We will provide a programme for all our young people of advice and guidance that is stable and delivered by individuals with the right skills and experiences. We will create opportunities for our young people that they have not experienced before and therefore developing their aspirations and horizons. Their learning will be connected to their future and provide them with the skills necessary to make a successful transition to the next stage of their life.

Employers who are interested in working with us please look at the information on this page. As you can see we work closely with The Pledge, if you are not part of this programme and you would like to be please contact them. We are working hard with employers to ensure that we provide Gatsby benchmark 5 and 6. If you would like to be involved with our programme, please contact


We are continually reviewing our CEIAG curriculum map to ensure any fragile learning is addressed over this academic year. The curriculum map is reviewed annually in June by both Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School and the TCAT Careers and Aspirations Hub. Next review date:  June 2021.

We will use The eight Gatsby Charitable Foundation Benchmarks to support the delivery of our careers provision:

  1. We will deliver a stable careers programme
  2. We will provide learning from career and labour market information
  3. We will address the needs of each student
  4. We will link our curriculum learning to careers
  5. We will provide encounters with employers and employees
  6. We will provide experiences of workplaces, at least one a year.
  7. We will deliver encounters with further and higher education
  8. We will provide personal guidance.

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. Student voice is listened to on a regular basis to ensure students are inspired and prepared for their futures by our programme.
