Careers Advice

“Closely tailored careers guidance is very strong. Students are very well prepared for their next steps in education, employment or training.” Ofsted 2018

To be able to get access to independent and impartial Careers Advice at the right time is vitally important and The Arnewood School is committed to ensuring that all students and their parents/carers have this opportunity.

Careers Guidance can:

 

  • Inspire students by identifying a careers direction to work towards.
  • Broaden the student’s horizons, challenges stereotype and raises expectations.
  • Provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to make a successful transition to the next stage of their life.

The school has a dedicated Careers and Aspirations Lead – Mr. M. Colman who can be contacted by email on m.colman@arnewood.hants.sch.uk or telephone on 01425 625408.

Careers Information

 

Being an education establishment, we follow the Gatsby Benchmarks. These 8 Benchmarks are the foundation of our Careers Programme. Our provision is inspected and audited by the Careers and Enterprise Company using the Compass Careers Benchmark Tool. This tool is used by schools and colleges in England to support the analysis and evaluation of careers activity against the eight benchmarks of best practice. As recommended by Gatsby Benchmark 1, we plan to review the published Careers information on an annual basis, inviting feedback from key stakeholders.

The Careers Department coordinates a fantastic variety of activities, visits and events tailored specifically for each year group. These include; lessons and workshops integrated into the curriculum, assemblies, guest speakers, work experience schemes, practice interviews with real employers, external visits, FE / HE / Training provider talks, Careers Fair and Apprenticeship talks.

Arnewood School – Provider Access Policy 2021-2022

This policy sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Please click here to read our Provider Access Statement in full. The School uses Compass + to record, measure and evaluate the careers programme. This tool along with analysing destination data and surveys are then used to measure the programmes impact. In addition, where appropriate, the views of students and parents will be surveyed after key events. Arnewood School maintains accurate destination data for Year 11 and 13 leavers.
