Pupils at Orchardside School engage in a programme of Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) form Year 7 to Year 11. This reflects the Gatsby benchmarks. There is a variety of opportunities and resources available to our students. Whether this activity be a Careers Assembly, a Careers Fair, College visits, Work placement or Work experience, our aim is to provide each student with the support they need to make choices for their future. There are also additional trips, visits and events that are organised by departments throughout the year.
‘Think futures’ is a website which gives a source of impartial and independent information for anyone who is starting to consider their career options for the first time.
It allows students to look through different careers options, see what the requirements are for that field of work, expected salary, average working hours, plus much more. Their website can be accessed by clicking the link below.
