The careers education programme at EOTAS provides our students with the opportunity to plan and manage their careers effectively, ensuring progression which is ambitious and aspirational. This is achieved through bespoke careers support, access to our Personal Development Curriculum and through the academic curriculum.  It promotes equality of opportunity, celebrates diversity and challenges stereotypes. It is designed to meet the Gatsby benchmarks and conforms to statutory requirements.

We aim to ensure that students:

  • Develop the skills and attitudes necessary for success in adult and working life
  • Are aware of the range of opportunities which are realistically available to them in continued education and training at 14+ and 16+
  • Are equipped with the necessary decision making skills to manage these same transitions
  • Develop an awareness of the wide variety of education, training and careers opportunities both locally and nationally
  • Use effectively paper based , virtual and staff resources so they can make informed and appropriate choices throughout their school journey
  • Benefit from links fostered between the school, local businesses and further education establishments
  • Experience the world of work and transferable skills
  • Wherever possible leave the school to enter further education , employment or training
  • Experience a culture of higher aspirations, equality of opportunity, in which diversity is celebrated and stereotypes challenged
  • Receive extra assistance and guidance to reach their potential where this is necessary
