Students leave St Edmund’s well equipped to access stimulating careers. The curriculum inspires intellectually flexible, articulate, confident thinkers. Teachers develop pupils’ abilities to adapt to change, to think quickly and assess multiple perspectives simultaneously. These traits are high on the appreciation ladder for recruiters and employers.
We understand that everyone’s journey beyond school is going to be, and ought to be distinctive, and reflect the person and his/her preferences and ambitions. Careers provision does not guide all pupils towards university education: there are many routes for pupils to explore, and discussion is encouraged.
Careers Education at St Edmund’s includes a careers investigator survey, online profiling, exploration and employability modules, Open Days, links to useful websites and more. Pupils can also follow a Facebook page (Careers and Progression at St Edmund’s) which regularly features employment opportunities.
