Careers Award Success

St Mary's has been recognised nationally as an 'outstanding' centre of excellence in careers advice!

We have just been awarded the Career Connect Quality Award for Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIG).

Every UK school has a statutory duty to secure independent and impartial careers guidance for students in Year 8 to 13.

St Mary's Careers provision, according to the Career Connect Quality Award report, is 'outstanding'. 

The CEIG report states:

'St Mary's now provides an outstanding programme of CEIAG,Work Related Learning and Enterprise, which continues to evolve.'

The report goes on:

'A seamless programme of activities...helps to support student progression towards successful destinations.'

In real terms, as well as providing opportunities for individual careers interviews within school, this also means providing an extensive timetable of external speakers, including a large number of former students who have achieved career success in many different fields.

St Mary's regular Careers Fairs, attended by major regional employers and education providers, also provide students with ideas and encouragement to confidently choose the career paths right for them. (Our 2016 Careers Fair is pictured below).
