Careers education

BHES seeks to maximise the life chances of all of our young people and so it is crucial to prepare young people for life beyond school and college.

BHES objectives & on-roll school responsibilities

  • To ensure that all students at the school receive a stable careers programme
  • To enable all students to learn from information provided by the career and labour market
  • The CEIAG programme should be individual and address the needs of each student
  • To link the curriculum learning to careers learning
  • To provide students with a series of encounters with employers and employees
  • To provide students with experiences of workplace(s)
  • To ensure that students have a series of encounters with further and higher education
  • To provide each student with the opportunity to receive personal guidance

BHES is not the on-roll school for the majority of students and may not cover all objectives. On-roll schools retain the overall responsibility for careers delivery. BHES will ensure the on-roll school is informed during the review process and will ensure that they are clear as to how we can support them to provide these objectives.
