Careers, Advice and Guidance
At White Bridge College, we are committed to providing our students with a programme of careers education. Tailored careers advice and guidance prepares students for the challenges of adulthood and working life. We recognise that some students will need more support and guidance than others to help them make aspirational and appropriate career choices, this guidance is given through 1:1 sessions, PSHE lessons, and through direct events and workshops
When delivering careers education, we ensure that information about learning options and careers advice is presented impartially, and that the advice promotes the best interest of our students.
The aims of outstanding, impartial careers education may be summarised as follows:
- Empowering young people to plan and manage their own futures
- Responding to the needs of each learner
- Providing comprehensive information and advice
- Raising aspirations
- Actively promoting equality of opportunity
- Challenging stereotypes
- Helping young people to progress
Our Careers and Work Related Learning Coordinator is Ms Glover. She can be contacted by emailing email@example.com
