Commitment to the Quality in Careers Standard
I am pleased to confirm that the Governors and staff of Little Heath School are committed to gaining The Quality in Careers Standard as soon as possible. Our aim is to provide an outstanding programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance activities that satisfy national requirements and provide guidance which enables us to address the career development needs of all our students.
We welcome the opportunity to audit our current delivery and to hopefully improve what we currently offer so that all the people who form the Little Heath School community will benefit.
There is a wealth of careers information available at school.
The Careers Library is located downstairs in the Science block opposite C4. Mrs Wooller, who runs the Careers Service at Little Heath School, is on hand every day to answer queries, show students where to look for essential information and to give students prospectuses for local colleges, universities and apprenticeships. Every Thursday, Mrs Wooller can be found in the sixth form library, where she is available to all Sixth Formers.
The Careers team also consists of governor, Mr Young, assistant Head Teacher Mrs Coneley and a dedicated Adviza Consultant, Mrs Emma Dollymore. Mrs Dollymore, visits Little Heath School twice a week. She provides one to one consultations and bespoke group activities in order to promote Careers Education, Information and Guidance for all students
Exciting, current information relating to “Careers” is available weekly via the Little Heath School Careers Bulletin! Students and parents from Years 10 – 13 receive this via our communication in touch system. All other students can access this via Show My Homework, their tutors or the careers department. In addition Careers Companion provides an enormous amount of independent information to help students and parents commence early careers research and supports the decision making process in relation to transition from school into the workplace or Higher/Further Education. Students and parents also have access to Unifrog, a platform where they can easily connect to university courses, apprenticeship opportunities and careers information which is up to date and relevant.
If you would like any advice or could offer any help to us as a school please contact Mrs Wooller, our Careers Leader on firstname.lastname@example.org
