ADDRESSING THE NEEDS OF EACH PUPIL
(Gatsby Benchmark 3)
‘Pupils have different career guidance needs at different stages. Opportunities for advice and support need to be tailored to the needs of each pupil. A school’s careers programme should embed equality and diversity considerations throughout’ Gatsby Framework
It is essential that all of our pupils are fully aware of the range of opportunities available to them. Pupils may be considering an Apprenticeship, Traineeship, Further / Higher Education or working with a local Training provider. Whatever their aspirations, we make sure all pupils understand how to access information to progress to the next level of their education, training or employment.
