Careers and Higher Education Support
Alan Liddell (Deputy Head– Curriculum) has overarching responsibility for Student Progression at the school and Lewis Symes (Assistant Head) has oversight of careers and employability
Careers and Employability
Careers and Employability support is built into our tutorial programme and through advice and guidance 1-1 meetings with Tutors and Academic Mentors.
Students may request a Careers Advice appointment through their Tutor or Academic Mentor
In addition to the tutorial programme, our Transition Programme for Level 2 students includes a focus on work-related learning and at Level 3, we offer an Employability Course to increase students’ employability and work readiness skills in their second year at Beauchamps. We also offer a wide range of Careers related enrichment events and activities including visiting speakers, trips & visits.
We believe work experience is an essential part of a students development and all Year 12 students are expected to take part in a two week work experience activity towards the end of their first year.
We encourage all students to regularly check the Careers SharePoint site to access the most up to date work experience opportunities. Students wishing to discuss these further, or to request support, should contact Mr Symes directly by email.
Therese Brabant (firstname.lastname@example.org) our Higher Education Coordinator, leads the support provision for students who wish to progress to university, ensuring excellent advice and guidance for students on the UCAS process through the tutorial programme.
Our programme of Higher Education enrichment activities includes:
- Use of the UCAS platform to help students make good initial choices and submit strong applications
- Mock university interviews
- Visits from university representatives
- Guest speakers
- Library helpdesk
Events and activities are advertised through the Sixthform Monday Email bulletin, tutorial, subject lessons and via the Sixthform Lounge.
