Careers Lead – Miss C Johnson
Work Experience Co-ordinator – Mr T Roberts
Our careers programme aims to ensure that all students are prepared for success in education, employment and training. Careers education, information and advice is delivered to all students in Years 7 to 11 as part of their PSHCE programme and through the Personal Development programme in Sixth Form. There are a range of opportunities for students to encounter the world of work, through visits, external speakers and the opportunity to take part in Work Experience is offered to students in Year 10 and Year 12.
Developed in accordance with Section 42A of the Education Act 1997, the 2017 government Careers Strategy and the 2021 Careers Development Institute Career Development Framework, our Careers programme can be viewed here. The impact of the programme is evaluated in collaboration with our Enterprise Adviser, using the Careers and Enterprise Compass tool and through analysis of the Destinations data, which can be viewed here
Students at Bishop Heber receive unbiased information about potential next steps. Careers guidance meetings are available on request and every student in Year 11 attends an interview with a member of the Senior Leadership Teams as part of their ‘Futures’ planning. Cheshire West Young People’s service provide additional careers guidance for eligible students.
Every two years a Careers Convention is organised at Bishop Heber with representatives from industry, commerce and education, to which all students and their parents from Year 9 to 13 are invited.
