Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance
Careers Education provides a way of developing knowledge, understanding and experience of opportunities in education, training and employment. It aims to develop skills needed to make improved decisions and it is a way of helping students to apply knowledge and understanding and skills to their own circumstances. At Brighouse High School we integrates Careers Guidance with a well-planned programme of Careers Education.
At Brighouse High School we recognise that is important therefore that students leave school / college aware of themselves as individuals, aware of the opportunities available to them and able to make some decisions about their own life. They should be prepared for the transition from full-time education to the world beyond. It is to these aspects of personal and social development that this policy will contribute.
At Brighouse High School our programme aims:
- To encourage all students to recognise and value their own skills and abilities and to appreciate their relationships with, and responsibilities towards, other people, the community and environment.
- To develop the skills which will help students make informed and realistic choices for their future.
- To enable students and parents to be aware of the alternatives and opportunities open to them at different stages of their life and to raise aspirations.
- To develop the skills, including communication and confidence that will be needed in new roles and situations.
- To encourage understanding and experience of the world of work through Work Related Learning (WRL) and enterprise activities.
- To promote equality of opportunity in respect of race, religion, gender and special needs disability.
- To develop students’ capabilities and to understand their own needs and abilities.
- To encourage students to investigate career opportunities both locally and nationally and through direct experience of the world of work, work related learning and enterprise activities.
