Chasetown Community School

Careers Education, Information and Guidance at Chasetown Community School

At Chasetown Community School we believe that everyone deserves to be part of a stronger, fairer society in which people from all backgrounds can realise their potential.

We believe that a thriving careers programme, that is accessible to all, is fundamental to this. Although pupils will move to other educational settings before they begin a career we want all pupils to believe that they have the potential to build a rewarding career.

Our Career Policy will set out how the school intends to provide a careers programme, which will provide all pupils with the knowledge, inspiration and ability to take ownership of their own career plans. It aims to challenge perceptions and raise aspirations so that subject choices and career choices are free from gender bias. The policy should encourage pupils to look beyond their current environment and to help them investigate new and exciting career possibilities.

The Careers Policy will outline how we help pupils: 


1.  Understand how their skills, knowledge and interests can be used in the workplace.
2. Understand the options that are available.
3. Understand how to apply for a job and to consider the attributes and qualities employers may look for.


The school offers a Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme that is appropriate for a middle school following statutory guidance.
