Calderstones Careers Programme: Our Vision

We pride ourselves at Calderstones on giving students a well-rounded education and as part of their learning we have developed a broad and extensive careers programme in order to:

  • raise student aspirations and broaden horizons
  • inspire and empower students to make informed and realistic decisions at key transition points in learning and work
  • Inform all students of the pathways that are available to them, including technical training
  • provide good quality, independent and impartial careers advice to students, which inspires them and motivates them to fulfil their potential
  • provide advice and guidance that is in the best interests of the individual student
  • provide opportunities to work in partnership with employers, training providers, local colleges and others to provide opportunities to inspire students through real-life contact with the world of work
  • develop enterprise and employability skills, including skills for self-employment
  • support inclusion, challenge stereotypes and promote equality of opportunity

We strive to constantly improve the career provision at Calderstones and have a team of core staff working together to ensure students receive the best career advice and guidance as possible. 

We are developing careers across all subject areas with a lead member of staff in each department. They will be the main point of contact for subject specific career activities with an aim to inspire students to research career pathways in their subject area.
