Careers guidance

The Careers Adviser works in conjunction with the Headteacher/Careers Leader, Mr Stephen Mansell, Heads of Year and Tutors to ensure the implementation of our Careers Policy.  In March 2020, The Boswells School was awarded the national ‘Quality in Careers Standard’ through the awarding body ‘Investing in Quality’.  The award recognises that the school meets the Gatsby 8 benchmarks, the quality of the school careers programme and the high standard of information, advice and guidance given to young people.

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. Mrs Page is located in the Upper School Pastoral hub where students can make an appointment, access IT and research colleges, universities, apprenticeship and job opportunities. 

A careers programme is delivered through our Personal Development programme in Years 7 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; lessons include creation of a CV, application form and covering letter.

The majority of our Sixth Form students continue on to university and expert support is available to help students make the right decision.   Full support is available to those students 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.   Please see further information on the government website link here.
