St Thomas More School is committed to providing impartial careers guidance to all of its students from 11 to 18 years. The implementation of a stable careers programme will support students to make well informed choices and realistic decisions for further and higher education, training and ultimately, a future career path.Following the Gatsby Benchmarks to providing ‘good careers guidance’, the school intends to support each student as an individual through a multitude of opportunities to learn more about careers opportunities, such as engagement with local employers, Labour Market Information to inform the young people of the school of upcoming career sectors and growth, and personal guidance for each student on their career and learning decisions.
Among the various career activities that St Thomas More holds for its students, employer engagement is a challenging obstacle that we are looking to overcome by giving students the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of professionals from different sectors. We encourage employers and professionals to contact the careers leader directly and contact details can be found in the Careers Policy Statement document.
This space on the website will be used to upload information on opportunities such as university open days, local careers opportunities and enterprise activities, so students, parents and teachers can keep up to date with all of the upcoming events.
The careers programme at St Thomas More School is reviewed annually at the beginning of each academic year to ensure the information, advice and guidance is up to date and appropriate for our students. We are keen to incorporate feedback and suggestions from both parents of students and employers and have provided a Google Form below for this feedback to be submitted.
