Careers

"Who we are today is creating who we are going to be tomorrow - let's help our next generation to prepare for tomorrow - TODAY"

At New College Leicester we aim to support, enable and empower students, staff and parents/carers to maximise the full potential of our students.

New College has been awarded Quality in Careers Standard Award Career Mark Gold in recognition of outstanding and continued commitment to careers education and guidance. We strive to give our students every opportunity. We encourage our students to be ambitious and have high aspirations. Through developing their communication skills, employability skills and self-confidence, we prepare them for the world of work.

Careers education is embedded through our extensive personal development programme, through subject curricula and outside the classroom through student centred activities. This ensures that students have the information they need to progress into further education, training or employment.

 

All students maintain a ‘Careers Passport’ which records their future aspirations. This is revisited annually and informs discussions with an independent careers’ advisor

The impact of our career’s programme is measured by the proportion of students who move on to further educations, training or employment. This data is provided to the school through Connexions and is reviewed annually.
