The primary aims of the Careers Education and Guidance programme are to:

· Help young people develop an understanding of their own and others’ strengths, limitations, abilities, potential, personal qualities, needs, attitudes and values.

· Help young people investigate opportunities for further learning and employment, make decisions and manage transitions across key stages.

· Ensure that, wherever possible, all young people leave the school with employment, further education or training.

Soar Valley College uses the Gatsby Benchmarks as a guide to plan our Pathways and Enrichment programme. As part of our commitment to informing our students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to students.

Soar Valley College also proactively seek to build relationships with these partners as we plan our Pathways and Enrichment activity throughout the school year to ensure that providers have multiple opportunities to speak to students and their parents across Years 7- 11, to offer information on vocational, technical and apprenticeship qualifications and pathways.

Soar Valley College ensures that all staff involved in personnel guidance and pastoral support are up to date on their knowledge of these post 16 and pathways, through a programme of continuing professional development. Opportunities for providers to speak with students may include school assemblies, employer and provider engagement events or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting GCSE and Post 16 option choices.

Soar Valley’s Enrichment programme is monitored for quality and impact by the Senior Leadership Team and by governors and monitoring of access to and opportunities to engage with, technical, vocational and training providers will form part of this process.

Information, Advice and Guidance lessons are designed to help students make well-informed and realistic decisions at key points in their education.
