Careers Education at Selby High School
At Selby High School we provide students with a wide range of careers education opportunities from Year 7 right through to Year 11. Our Life Development curriculum has specific career based units of work, with identified learning objectives, outcomes and related activities. Alongside this students have a number of opportunities to experience work related activities both within the school environment and through external visits.
We employ an independent careers advisor who is based in the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) and provides students with 1:1 careers support, advice, and guidance through an appointment system and drop in sessions.
Please find further information in our Provider Access Policy on how to come into school to talk to our students about your service.
New Careers Statutory Guidance
The DfE released a new statutory guidance document in January 2018, including a number of new requirements for school careers programmes, most of which are to be met by the end of 2020. Most of the requirements are already met at Selby High School, but we are working towards those that are not.
The most immediate requirement is for all schools to have a policy for 'Provider Access' that sets out the arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. At Selby High School we have always encouraged this and, as a result, we work with a wide range of organisations already but we are always looking for opportunities to further broaden access to information, advice and guidance. We therefore welcome continued input from both existing and potential new partners alike. Please see our Provider Access Policy for further information.
Our current careers policy can be found under the 'Our School' tab of our website, and our current careers entitlement for our students appears below.
