George Abbot School is fully committed to careers education and
guidance (CEG) for all its pupils.
CEG is taught within the PSE curriculum for KS3 and KS4, although there is a cross-over into all subjects. Sixth formers attend Feature Lectures and specialist days.
Key Stage 3
During Years 7 and 8 students investigate various aspects of careers education through their PSE lessons and by accessing dedicated careers websites.
This is an important year for students; they get to make their GCSE choices. It is one of the first times that they get to make decisions that may affect their future career. The students are thoroughly prepared for this during their PSE lessons, assemblies and form time.
Key Stage 4
Now that their GCSEs are under-way students begin to look towards the next transition in their lives.
To assist with this students take part in a mock interview process in Year 10. They complete an application form and CV and are then interviewed by a local employer who has been kind enough to give up their time to help us out.
Later in the year some students will take part in a work experience week; the students find a placement that interests them and work there as an employee would.
All students are fully supported in their preparation for these two events through their PSE lessons.
All students are entitled to external and impartial careers advice. This could be via a designated website, careers events or an interview with a careers guidance adviser who comes into the school. Here at George Abbot we employ the services of Careers Management Consultants.
In Year 11 students receive information via their PSE lessons and assemblies regarding choices for further education or employment with training.
