Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance is a crucial part of education for young people. The landscape of education, training and employment opportunities that students face is more complex and challenging than that faced by previous generations. Qualifications are changing, 年轻人面临着更广泛的课程选择, places to study, and careers available.


To help pupils have a successful transition to adult life and take ownership of their own career path by developing the skills and confidence needed to:

  • Make informed decisions for themselves,
  • Be able to manage their own transitions between the different stages of their education and career.

确保所有学生接受独立教育是万博maxbetx官网的法定责任, 关于他们所有选择的公正建议和指导, and how they will affect their opportunities after school and which careers pathways will become available to them. 在关键阶段帮助学生做决定, 告诉他们所有的选择,并把他们介绍到工作的世界, 无论他们选择哪条道路,万博maxbetx官网的目标都是让他们为毕业后的生活做好准备.

The Careers Education Programme

职业学习从7年级开始,一直持续到13年级. The programme has been designed with a different focus for each year group which is relevant for the life stage the student is at.

The school careers education programme is based on the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance, and meets statutory guidelines as published in the DfE document “Careers guidance and access for education and training providers” dated January 2023.

At Watford Grammar School for Girls we are committed to ensuring that all pupils get the careers provision that they require. 职业方案将每年审查一次,并在必要时加以调整. The effectiveness of the careers programme and of careers events will be monitored by feedback collected from pupils, parents, teachers and employers.
