Vision for Careers education at The King’s CE school
Through our Careers programme we aim to equip all students with the knowledge, skills and drive to make the choices that will allow them to aspire, believe and achieve throughout their careers.
They will experience and take part in activities that encourage them to aspire to greatness, reflect on their strengths and build on areas for development and gain an understanding of the different pathways that will allow them to achieve great things.
As a school we are striving to achieve excellence in all areas and to instill this value in our students. All students will experience a Careers education that inspires and supports, guides and advises as well as informs them about pathways to achieving their potential.
Please see the careers programme overview below and the 9 sub areas from the menu on the left hand side (desktop) or below (mobile).
Thank you for visiting the careers section of The King's CE School website. For more information please see the named sections on the menu or contact the Ms A Arnold as our careers leader in school.
