Careers Education

At Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School, students take part in a programme of Careers Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance from Year 7 right up to Year 13. They have access to a dedicated Careers Library and take part in a wide range of activities.  

All learners will take part in a programme that helps them to:

  • Understand their education, training, employment, and other progression opportunities
  • Develop the skills they need to plan and manage their own personal development and career progression
  • Access relevant information
  • Learn from taster activities and work experience
  • Make and maintain individual progression plans to help them improve their prospects of success
  • Participate in after-school clubs

Students have access to and are supported in using careers information that is:

  • Easy-to-find and available at convenient times and in convenient locations, including on the school intranet
  • Clearly labelled and referenced
  • Comprehensive, giving details of all progression opportunities and associated support arrangements, such as financial help
