Careers Education at The Mosslands School

The aim of the Careers programme is to ensure that all pupils who leave us at 16 or later have the necessary skills and attributes to be able to access further study, training and employment to become economically independent in the future.

Careers education is at the centre of preparing the students for lifelong employability. All subjects integrate employability skills and subject specific careers information into their schemes of work. There are bespoke careers lessons within the PSHE scheme and form periods.

All students have careers provision tailored to their abilities. This provision seeks to raise aspirations of significant underachieving groups to narrow gaps in outcomes. Our careers adviser works with students through whole class, small group and individual activities to prepare students at key decision points in their school career.

The impact of the careers provision is measured against a range of data and destination data plays a key part in this.

The Careers Programme is evaluated termly. This is done using the CEC COMPASS + tool. This information is used to plan events in school and is reported on the website annually in December.

Destination data, available annually, also informs planning in the autumn term.

The Careers information on the school website is updated annually in December. Additional updates may be made if significant information or legislation changes.

Following the Pandemic a number of opportunities for encounters have not returned. The action plan for 2023-24 includes plugging these gaps.

Our Careers and 6th Form Careers Google Classrooms continue to be used to publicise events pupils can access in their own time. Pupils are encouraged to record these activities on Unifrog.
