Careers Guidance in School - Downloads

Whitworth Community High School is committed to providing a planned programme of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for all students in year 7 through to 11, in partnership with local education providers, employers and other key stakeholders. The impact of our CEIAG provision is measured and assessed using the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks for world class careers guidance and our excellent Destinations Data.


Students begin working towards developing a career perspective from year 7 through PSHE lessons, form time activities and assemblies plus a wide range of other resources, services and opportunities. All pupils have access to independent careers advice via the school's Independent Careers Advisor, Ms L Grenaghan. Working to support the school's Independent Careers Advisor is Whitworth's Career Leader, Mrs Howarth, who can be contacted on the school number or via email at


The school currently uses Start, one of the UK's most popular and reputable online career services that any pupil and parent can sign up to (click the banner below to go to Start).
