Careers

At Melrose School, we are committed to ensuring that all our students in years 7 to 11 have high quality impartial advice on career opportunities, and that they progress onto appropriate courses or employment on leaving the school. It is very important to us to know that all leavers have a plan for their next step.

“Our mission is to inspire all our students to make the best transition possible into the right choice for their next steps, whether that is employment, further or higher education, and to support in the development of the skills needed to manage a fulfilling career in a changing world.”

We support our students in making well-informed decisions by providing access to differentiated, impartial and independent information and guidance about the range of options (including academic, vocational, apprenticeships) that are most likely to help them to achieve their ambitions. We believe that giving students the best careers education and guidance is vital to improving their motivation to learn and help them to achieve.

Advice for Employers and Partners 

We would like to engage with employers both locally and nationally, in order to give our students the best opportunity to understand the world of work and understand the importance of developing their own skills and aptitudes to support them as they progress through Melrose.

We are still building strong links with a wide number of different employers who have been supportive of the work, which we are doing with our students.

We would love to engage more employers in the work, which we have been doing. If you would like to be involved in any of the events which we plan to run, or feel that you would be able to contribute to our Careers Programme in any way, please contact our Careers Lead, Temi Ismail.

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is delivered through a range of activities for every student from Year 7 to Year 11. During a planned programme which gives students the opportunity to examine a wide range of future careers options, learning about pathways, careers roles and Labour Market Information. Students also have the opportunity to develop their employability skills, encounter providers of further and higher education and learn from employers. The CEIAG programme is designed to help the Academy work towards the Gatsby Benchmarks and satisfy the statutory guidelines outlined in DFE guidance.
