Careers

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 j.howarth@whitworth.lancs.sch.uk.

 

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).

 

 

During year 9, students attend the school careers fair in the Autumn Term and a local employers’ career fair in the Summer Term. In year 10, all students have a week out of school on work experience and are also given the opportunity to have a one to one guidance session with a qualified careers advisor.

 

Pupils continue to be supported throughout year 11 to help prepare them for their next steps.  For further guidance please click here. For a summary of the Whitworth Careers Programme which is updated annually, please click here.

 

We always need support from people in the world of work.  If you would like to support the school's careers programme please contact the school directly and the careers team will get in touch with you.  For the school's policy statement on provider access please click here. We also want to hear your views on our careers programme. If you would like to provide feedback please click here.

 

Labour market information (LMI) tells you about what is happening in jobs right now and how jobs might change in the future.  LMI looks at who is hiring, what jobs are in demand, and what jobs are in decline.  Anyone interested in a particular job or job sector should look at the related LMI.  This information may help you choose a job that will give you the best pay and best opportunities in the future.  Use the widgets and web links below to explore LMI.
