Careers Guidance

Careers Guidance

At Glenwood School we are committed to preparing our young people for the adult world, supporting them to make realistic and informed decisions.

At Key stage 3, careers guidance is taught cross-curricular which supports pupils’ understanding of the world around them, their social and emotional development by encouraging them to have the confidence to identify their strengths, acknowledge areas for development and how to improve them as well as promoting their decision making, negotiation, self-presentation skills and the confidence to have high aspirations for the future.’

At key stage 4, pupils explore the world of work through industry visits, a practice interview, and a two weeks work experience placement. Pupils also have an opportunity to meet professionals from Hampshire Futures to discuss their interests, ambitions and relevant college courses so by the time the pupils reach Year 11 they are fairly clear about the choices available to them. Parents and carers are also involved in the process. Also the annual Education, Health and Care Plan review provides the formal opportunity to discuss progress, any concerns and also plan for the future. Pupils also have opportunity to gain COPE, AOPE or Health & safety at work (level 1 qualification).

At Glenwood School we are committed to preparing our young people for the adult world, supporting them to make realistic and informed decisions. The 3 main area that consists of self-development, career exploration and career management is embedded in the school curriculum and taught as cross-curricular.  We are also committed to support parents and carers, for whom the transition of their child to Further Education can be a daunting and confusing time. 

Communication and Advocacy   Pupils will be confident digital citizens who will have the knowledge, skills and understanding on how to operate independently as young people in and outside the community.  
Independence and Preparing for Adulthood   Pupils will learn what it means to be a responsible employee or indeed employer, and how to make a valuable contribution to the community in which they live.  Pupils’ will be given opportunities to practice vital life skills so that they can operate independently as young people and adults, and so they can fully participate in their school life and life beyond school.  
Physical, Social and Emotional Good Health   Pupils will develop self-esteem, confidence and motivation for learning and work. Pupils will understand how to take care of their mental well-being and where to seek support if they are not coping the pressure of the world of work.
