A number of events, integrated into the Schools Careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to students and/or their parents. Please see our careers ladder for more information on our careers events or speak to our Careers Leader to identify the most suitable opportunity for you. 

The School policy on safeguarding sets out the School’s approach to allowing providers into School as visitors to talk to our students. Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature which is managed by the School Librarian. The Resource Centre will be available to all students at lunch and break times. 

Premises and Facilities 

The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The School will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Leader or a member of their team.
