All our young people receive information, guidance and advice on planning their next steps whether into employment, training or further education.
The careers curriculum explores the world of work, and work related learning. Careers inspiration and guidance at Overton is a progressive journey from Year 7- 13 and covers each of the Gatsby Benchmarks.
The young people will follow a careers programme learning from labour market information, addressing the needs of every young person and linking curriculum learning to careers.
The young people will experience encounters with employers and employees, have experience of workplace, experiences and visits with further and higher education providers, and receive personal guidance from an independent careers’ advisor.
There are opportunities for work related learning and careers at every level, with opportunities identified both onsite and through partnership with businesses in the local area. Work experience opportunities are sought in relation to the young people’s interest and their careers aspirations.
