Careers Adviser

The Careers Adviser works in conjunction with the Assistant Headteacher, Head of Sixth Form, Heads of Year and Tutors to ensure the implementation of our Careers Policy.  In October 2016 The Boswells School received re-accreditation for the Recognition of Quality Award (RoQA) for Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance Award. Also, in May 2015 The Boswells School was awarded the Recognition of Quality Award in Work Related Learning.

Mrs Page is a fully qualified Careers Advisor with a Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development.  She is in school full time, offers individual, impartial Careers interviews and is always available to offer help and support to students. Careers office (B4) is located opposite Mr Cheema’s office where students are welcome to pop in anytime.

The Careers Library is open at lunchtime and is fully resourced with books, information and local college prospectuses.  There is IT access, and students can research colleges, universities, apprenticeships and job opportunities.

A careers programme is delivered through our PHSCE programme in Years 8 to 11, to encourage the students to reflect on and consider the factors involved in making decisions about their future and the options available to them.  A Work Experience programme, Mock Interviews and Careers Evening are offered for upper school students.

The majority of our Sixth Form students continue onto university and expert support is available to help students make the right decision.  There is also support available to those wishing to enter employment, gain an apprenticeship or take a gap year.  Sixth Form careers advice is available and tailored to meet the needs of individual students.

Raising the Participation Age is a government policy which increases the minimum age at which young people in England can leave learning.  It means from summer 2013 students are required to participate in education, training or employment with training until the end of the academic year in which they turn 17 and from summer 2015 onwards until their 18th birthday.
