Careers advice

Introduction

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Pupil entitlement

All pupils in years 8-13 are entitled:

  •  to find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point;
  •  to hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events;
  •  to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

 

Management of provider access requests

Procedure

A provider wishing to request access should contact Bridget Hitchings, Assistant Headteacher

Telephone: 0151 228 3772; Email: b.hitchings@hollylodge.liverpool.sch.uk

Opportunities for access

A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carers:

Careers’ Fair

Mock interviews

Assemblies

Future Focus Week (Y12 and Y13)

Careers Event

In the week before half term, there were several events to help guide and support our Year 10 and Year 11 students making some decisions about their futures.

On Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th February all Year 11 students had a mock interview with representatives of businesses, colleges and universities.  The feedback from staff and students was really positive.  The students found it really useful to find out how to make improvements to their application forms and interview techniques and they gained a lot of confidence from the experience.  The employers were impressed by the maturity and ambition of the students. One commented that “Every girl I saw today was pleasant and polite and a credit to the school – a delight to be involved”.

 

On Thursday 8th February we had representatives from:

Liverpool University, LJMU, Liverpool Hope, Chester University, Edge Hill University, City of Liverpool College, Shaping Futures, Holly Lodge Sixth Form, St Helens College, Knowsley College, Cronton and Riverside, Hugh Baird, Myerscough, LIPA, Montebello, Michael John, Little League Sports, 3AAA, TPM, HMRC, Institute of Chemical Engineers, American Airlines, National Citizen Services and Career Connect come into school.  They saw all Year 10 and Year 11 students, with sixth formers visiting as well.

Students were able to get further knowledge about courses: how to apply, what was needed to get on them and where they could lead too.  Many were able to sign up on the day and now have interviews for our sixth form, local colleges or for apprenticeships.

All of this will be further backed up in school with Career Connect appointments for direct support.

We’d like to thank all of the providers and employers who have supported us with these events.
