Our aim is to help students identify and explore suitable options, including further education, course choices and careers. We aim to develop pupils’ employability skills and knowledge so they can gain confidence and make informed choices about their futures.


Pupils are able to access personalised guidance time with Mel, in which they discuss their future aspirations and research courses and careers together. Mel works 1:1 with pupils and within classes to help plan, offer guidance, advice and research pathways that suit aspirations and need. Mel also attends annual reviews to work with families on transition and plan ahead with parents and carers.


When working with individual pupils we take their needs, knowledge and skills into consideration and try to provide the best possible options to support them in gaining further confidence and experiences within the work place.
