Careers at Grange School

Grange School is committed to providing a planned programme of impartial careers education and information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all students as part of the Enterprise, Employability, and Independence Curriculum.  Student progress is tracked through carefully structured enterprise outcomes and monitoring of careers related learning.

This curriculum incorporates a wide range of planned activities, each having clear learning outcomes which support the development of skills that are required for the world of work and lifelong learning.  At Grange School careers education, information advice and guidance is both broad and balanced. The focus of this is on the personal development of each individual student, offering fully inclusive opportunities both within school and outside school to develop the necessary skills required to be “work ready” as they leave school.

Our students learn by doing, and all our students, regardless of ability, have the opportunity to sample a range of realistic career options as part of the work experience opportunities that are made available to them as part of the vocational curriculum. These opportunities are supported by both school staff and other professionals within a range of work contexts in the local community.

Student’s learning in this area of the curriculum is enhanced by their participation in enterprise days, college visits, enrichment activities and their involvement in local community projects. All activities aim to inspire, challenge and motivate students whilst at the same time promoting equality of opportunity.

As with all learning at Grange School, the Enterprise, Employability and Independence curriculum is fully differentiated and personalised in order to ensure that all students, regardless of ability are able to make progress in this area. This in turn equips them with the tools necessary to make informed decisions in terms of future destinations as they make the transition from school to adulthood.  All students, along with their parents and carers are fully supported throughout all transition processes which ensure positive and sustainable outcomes for students during their time at Grange School and beyond.
