Careers information, Advice and Guidance (CIAG) at Kelmscott seeks to help pupils develop the knowledge and skills they need to make successful life choices, manage transitions in learning and move into work.
We aim to raise aspirations and provide students with the knowledge , confidence and experience to make well-informed realistic choices about their futures and prepare them for their next stage in learning, work and life after Kelmscott.
Careers Education is embedded at the heart of the schooling and is delivered through a variety of standalone activities as well as during timetabled lessons and tutor time activities. Examples of our effective careers learning experience include Personal Statement and CV Clinics, Assemblies, University visits, Employer Workshops, Career Fairs, Professional Interview Days, Professional Men and Professional Women's Day, Personal Development activities, Life Experience Workshops, Guidance interviews, Receptionist Programmer and Career Workshops.
The schools career adviser (Aspire2learn) is in every Wednesday and Thursday to discuss career ideas and options after Year 11. All Year 10 and Year 11 students are allocated an interview between September and February. All other year groups can request an appointment.
All students seeking advice can come to the careers pod opposite the library and career resources are available to all students in a dedicated space in the school library.
