Work Experience & Careers

It has become increasingly the case that students in Years 9 – 13 are facing life-long decisions earlier in their education than ever. The reforms brought in by the government over the past five years has seen a shift in all subject areas to a more rigorous and academically robust version of their previous selves. However, industries have foreseen the need for an alternative to the traditional academic route into careers by expanding the number of vocational routes available into almost every professional sphere. The difficulty that all schools continue to face is how to create opportunities that help students, parents and teachers engage in useful conversations which aim to help young people make realistic choices about future careers and ambitions. Claremont’s approach to delivering comprehensive ‘careers guidance’ to its students which is in line with current and previous Government Policies puts students’ strengths and ambitions front and centre.  The careers programme in the school seeks to achieve each of the following from Year 8 – Year 13:

  • Use the Gatsby Benchmarks to improve careers provision
  • Create meaningful interactions with local employers and industries
  • Expose students to a wide array of information surrounding various careers
  • Coach students through the process of identifying strengths and ambitions
  • Facilitate students to create and enact a plan that gives them confidence in their choices when leaving Claremont.
  • Offer coaching based on a partnership with students, their teachers, and their parents or carers.
  • Do everything it can to raise aspirations, challenge stereotyping and actively promote equality and diversity.
