In line with the school’s vision to enable “all individuals to develop their talents and acquire skills for life” the Edgbarrow careers strategy aims to prepare students for an increasingly changing workplace with a programme designed to build transferable skills.
Objectives of the Programme

The key cornerstones of the programme are:

Careers Strategy 2023-2025
Careers education at Edgbarrow School is learning about jobs, work ethics, equipping students with skills for the workplace, ensuring transition occurs smoothly and helping to reduce barriers to entering the world of work.
All students will have a careers interview in Year 11 and the opportunity of a further one in Years 12 or 13. Students who would like to have a careers appointment should speak to their tutor or the Careers Manager, Mrs Robinson.
A detailed view of how we measure and assess the impact of the Careers Programme for students can be viewed in our Careers Strategy 2023-2025. Our Careers Programme is reviewed on an annual basis in conjunction with our CEAIG Policy and our provider access statement ("Baker Clause") is part of our CEIAG policy (Annex1).
