The Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme forms part of the personal development programme. Through careers enrichment days we aim to widen students’ horizons and give them a broad basis of skills from which they can plan their future careers. Students research a range of occupations, and learn how to use action planning, they also have the opportunity to explore post 16 options.

 

In addition to the taught careers programme, there are opportunities for students to explore their ideas:

 

  • We have up to date careers related publications and information in the Learning Resource Centre.

  • The CEIAG Officer is Debbie Crossley – with a background in careers guidance, Debbie is available in school to support students in making decisions and progressing on from KS4. Students are encouraged to make 1:1 appointments.

  • What to expect from a career guidance interview.. Click Here:

  • The Bolsover School also procure an external careers service to ensure impartiality is upheld. A qualified careers adviser from Chesterfield College is in school one day per week to carry out 1:1 appointments and group work sessions.

  • College and University visits will be offered to students to help them prepare for transition to post-16 education.

  • The Senior Leadership team, Heads of House, Heads of Department and Form Tutors are available to support students with choices, for example with information about Post-16 courses, information about predicted grades, and in writing references for applications.
     

  • Students are encouraged to visit colleges and 6th forms for open days. Information is circulated in school about these dates.

As part of our commitment to informing The Bolsover School students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to our students. The Bolsover School proactively seek to build on close working relationships with providers to speak with students which may include school assemblies, employer and provider engagement events or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting GCSE, post 16 choices. In the first instance, requests by providers should be sent to the School’s Careers Adviser, Mrs D Crossley, dcrossley@bolsover.derbyshire.sch.uk, with a minimum of 6 weeks’ lead time. All requests will be considered on the basis of; staffing availability to support the activity, clashes with other planned activity, trips or visits to the School, interruption to preparation for examinations or rooming and space availability to host the activity.

 

The Bolsover School uses several methods for assessing the impact the Careers Programme has on students:

  • 1:1 Guidance Appointment Evaluation Forms

  • NEET / Destination Data

  • Parental Feedback/ Parents Evenings

  • Enrichment Day Student Evaluation Forms

  • Trip/visit Student Evaluation Forms

 

All information and feedback is collated and analysed by the CEIAG Officer to help shape and develop the offer going forward. If you are a student or a parent of a child at The Bolsover School, please send any feedback about the Careers Service to dcrossley@bolsover.derbyshire.sch.uk
