Careers Leader: Mr Christopher Bell
At Priestlands School we value the importance of Careers education for our students’ futures. Our structured Careers Curriculum aims to inform and inspire them to make informed choices and become aware of possibilities as early as possible in their five year journey with us.
Priestlands students are encouraged to self-reflect on their own skills, interests and personality types in order develop an understanding what careers might best suit them.
Through Careers Education, taught as part of Life Skills, Priestlands School aims to raise aspirations, providing students with experiences and knowledge to make decisions about their futures.
Every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by students, parents, teachers and employers.
Access for external providers regarding careers and post 16 provision:
A provider wishing to request access should contact the SLT member of staff with responsibility for Careers, telephone number 01590 677033 or email the school, firstname.lastname@example.org.
