Careers Education at Greenford High School
Greenford High School is committed to providing students with high quality, independent advice and guidance with regards to careers, further and higher education and future life choices. Getting the right advice and guidance is an important part of school life- whether it is selecting your GCSE options or finding the right pathway at the end of Year 11. We have a comprehensive programme in place to ensure every student can explore their options and find the route to their future educational or career opportunities. Our Student VLE contains detailed information to support students in making choices about their future.
Our Careers Curriculum Intent and Careers Plan related to the Gatsby Benchmarks can be found here. You can find information for parents and carers here. We also have links to external organisations that can help you make decisions about your future.
Greenford High School works closely with Ealing Connexions and provides students with access to an impartial Level 6 Careers Coordinator, Clare Rodway. Clare meets Year 11 students to review options for Post-16 and explore everything from A Levels to local colleges and apprenticeships. Students are supported in applying for the next stage in their education or training and where relevant helped with arranging visits and interviews. Students are free to book follow-up appointments if their plans change and the goal is for every student to have a place in education or training for the following year by the end of Year 11.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, all face to face careers events (meeting Gatsby Benchmarks 5 and 6) have been postponed until further notice, to keep everyone safe. For more information about careers in the meantime email the Careers Leader, Miss Westcott, with any queries you may have or look at the resources below:
