Careers Information Advice and Educational Guidance
Careers education and guidance programmes make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. At Bow School, a planned programme of activities supports our students in choosing pathways that suit their interests and abilities and helps them to follow a career path and sustain employability throughout their working lives.
We ensure that all our pupils, including our sixth formers, receive effective careers guidance. We work with external advisors, businesses and academic institutions to facilitate the best available advice for our students and show them a path and guide them towards it. They are also exposed to different opportunities, whether through further education, work or apprenticeships.
Our programme of careers education is delivered via PSHE lessons, drop days and through enrichment activities. We conduct work experience for both our sixth form and year 10s, as well as providing career guidance for all pupils and links to businesses, exposing our students to external professionals, giving them a range of perspectives on work, employment and careers.
Bow School is also working in partnership with financial institutions such as Rothschild, Barclays Bank and Bank of America. We are also looking to broaden our links to businesses and work with the creative sector.
At Bow, we provide appropriate careers education from year 7 upwards. Our vision is that our students leave school with a developed sense of self awareness and an awareness of opportunities. We, as a school, have adapted to the needs of the students and their parents and feel confident that Bow School’s staff, governors and parents can work towards raising aspirations and encouraging our students to consider a wide range of careers that best suit their needs and intelligence.
