We aim to provide the best possible careers advice and guidance within school and to support this, every pupil will have the opportunity to meet with a trained careers adviser in KS4. We know however, that at home you will be keen to encourage your child to think about the career opportunites available for their future. In order to assist you with this, we have provided some links below to showcase some very useful information resources about future study options and current labour market opportunities.
We offer you a learning experience in a close community which supports our students academically and personally. We provide a unique programme of advice, support and guidance to help you achieve your potential.
ag6 provides an exciting post-16 learning experience, offering a varied curriculum in a stimulating environment that provides students of all academic abilities with a personalised and individual study programme. This can include the Pathway Programme for those students who are not quite ready to move to Level 3 study, a full range of A-Level and Applied courses or a blend of the two.
Labour Market Information (LMI)
Labour Market Information tells you about what is happening in the job market at national, regional and local levels and includes information about jobs and salaries, what skills employers are looking for in different industrial sectors, conditions, communities and future trends.
It can help you discover where the job opportunities are, the sectors, occupations and locations you need to look out for, and help you identify the skills your child might need to develop in the future.
Each year, all pupils receive an invite to join the Careers Hub (https://classroom.google.com/u/0/c/MjU5MTAzMDc0NTI1) on Google Classroom (invite code: cqte4jn). This gives pupils a huge amount of information and support when planning their future. They will find links to local training providers, upcoming opportunities for work experience, support with applications and links to further support should they need it.
Start Profile (https://lancashire.startprofile.com/page/home-page) is a website designed to help young people learn more about the opportunities open to them in their local area and support them in making informed career choices. Pupils can register to create an account on the website, allowing them to access tools to assist in finding the right path for themselves and also assist in making applications.
