Careers contact for employers
We are always keen to extend our careers programme. If you are a business or employer and feel you can help provide excellent careers information or opportunities for our students, then please contact the school's careers leaders: Mrs Rhiannon Chantler or Mrs Natalie Smith-O’Connell.
The aims of Careers Education at Werneth are to:
- Develop a careers guidance system that is right for our students, personalising our provision to their needs as individuals.
- Raise students’ achievement to allow them to develop aspirational but realistic paths into the workplace.
- Support inclusion and promote equality of opportunity and encourage students to contribute positively to their communities.
- Encourage participation in lifelong learning, including further and higher education as well as learning through apprenticeships and work.
- Allow students to develop a broad understanding of the world of work and an ability to respond to changing opportunities through labour market education and independent research.
- Empower students with access to information and guidance to allow them to independently research their paths into work, college, sixth form, further education, Higher Education and Apprenticeships.
- Allow students, the opportunity to enhance their skills for work and core competencies in line with our Academies values through the curriculum and independent learning.
- Allow the students an opportunity to be self-aware of their individual skills and qualities as well as their development needs when researching and making future choices.
- For our learners to be enthusiastic about their future opportunities and embrace their future.
- Embrace the Gatsby benchmark model to support our strategic goals in achieving an outstanding school wide careers provision for our learners.
