Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

At St Marylebone CE Bridge School we are committed to providing all our students in years 7 to 11 with a comprehensive programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance and work related learning.  

Our careers adviser, shared with our affiliate school, delivers group sessions, holds individual meetings with pupils and provides support throughout pupils’ time with us. Pupils explore Job Explorer Database (JED) a computer based program that makes careers information understandable, interesting, and engaging.

In addition we use work with a range of employers such as JEM and Oakray and the organisation Business in the Community (BITC) to give pupils opportunity to explore what potential employers are available locally.

To support our pupils’ communication skills in preparation for their working life we use the I Can talk for work program (https://www.icancharity.org.uk/content/talk-work-profile) which focuses on the communication skills needed for the workplace.

 

Our careers education, information, advice and guidance programme:

Work Experience

Work Experience for Year 11 takes place in June once they have finished their exams and qualifications. We work with a range of local businesses and organisations to try and finding a placement that is linked to their future aspirations and interests.  More detailed information will be shared with pupils and their families when placements have been found.  

Parents/Carers

 Parent and carers are encouraged to play an active part in support their child in making decisions around their future careers choices though our school annual review process. 

Parents and carers are always welcome to contact the Careers Lead, Ms Palmer (0203 693 4752) or n.palmer@stmarylebonebridgeschool.com to seek advice and ask any questions they might have regarding careers pathways.
