Careers Lead: Mrs A Roberts

Colmers School and Sixth Form College aims to prepare every student for life outside of Colmers. We
intend to equip students to make effective, informed and considered decisions about themselves and
their future. We work closely with a range of partners and outside agencies, (employers, colleges, and
Training providers) to inspire our students and to continuously raise their aspirations.

Our robust and varied Careers Education programme (CEIAG) plays a huge part in this ongoing process.
With all children having to remain in education or training until they are 18, Colmers provides a
comprehensive CEIAG programme for all pupils within Learning for Life, a weekly session delivered by
form tutors. In addition, we organise a programme of activities with local providers and up-to-date,
careers advice and guidance from our in-house Level 6 qualified careers advisor.

All pupils have access to the Careers Library that is centrally housed in the learning Hub. The Careers
Library has useful information, including University and College prospectuses to help students in
making Post-16 choices. Students in year 10 – 13 are registered onto Unifrog, an on-line platform that
supports them to explore career pathways, details of which can be found in the careers guidance
section.

We have a Careers Lead working full time ensuring our careers programme runs smoothly. The Careers
Lead Mrs Roberts is available from 8.00am until 4.00pm during the school day to provide students with
information and support. Students are free to contact Mrs Roberts for additional one-to-one or small
group interviews if required.

Any parent wishing to meet with the Careers Advisor can either call the school on 0121 453 1778 or
contact her directly via email at aroberts@colmers.school to book a meeting.
