Named 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. The whole curriculum timetable is linked to career choices. 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 currently housed in Mrs Roberts office. The Careers Library has useful information, including University and College prospectuses to help students in making post-16 choices. Key stage 5 prospectuses are housed in the sixth form study centre. Students in year 7 and 8 are registered onto Kudos and students in year 9 – 13 are registered onto Unifrog, both are on-line platforms that supports students to explore career pathways, details of which can be found in the career’s 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.
