Impartial and independent careers guidance


There is a duty on schools to secure independent careers guidance from a range of sources, for all year 8-13 students  so that they are inspired and motivated to fulfill their potential.  Although the school’s Careers Leader will provide students with impartial Career Information Advice and Guidance (CAIG), the school also works with an external provider who can offer support to students.

Young people at Belper School are entitled to receive:

  • Opportunities to learn about the world of work – including real life contacts
  • Career and Work Related Education to help develop skills and knowledge needed to manage their transition into future learning and work
  • Impartial advice and information on all available options , including further learning, apprenticeships, training and employment
  • Support and guidance to devise a career plan for the future
  • Support and guidance  to  put relevant plans in place for a transition into learning or work, on completion of their time at Belper School
  • The opportunity to have face to face careers advice and guidance from a qualified careers professional
