Careers information, advice and guidance is an important subject at Warlingham School.
Many opportunities to learn about careers will arise throughout the student's school life as illustrated in the mapping document below. This learning is supplemented by work carried out during Tutor Periods, assemblies and the ‘rolling tutor programme' (when the whole school comes off timetable for one lesson approximately every three weeks to work with their tutors). An important part of our work happens during Year 9 through the Options Process, in Year 11 during preparation work for post-16 provision and in Key Stage 5 for life beyond school. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an ten day work experience placement during Year 10 and many students will have work-based activities throughout their courses, including within the BTEC and Applied courses.
Careers Telephone Advice to support Warlingham Students
As part of our aim to ensure Warlingham students get the best possible Careers Information and Guidance we would like to make students and parents aware of the national service which has been launched.
The BIS provides a telephone careers helpline for students as part of the National Careers Service. Support is available from trained advisors who will talk through issues, offering confidential advice and practical help. We have been informed that advisers are available from 8am to 10pm, seven days a week, telephone 0800 100 900, or for text messages on 0776 641 3219. We very much hope that this will be a useful, additional tool which will benefit Warlingham students in guiding them towards the right careers choices.
Independent Careers Advice
We also provide independent careers advice and guidance through an external provider. These appointments can be arranged by contacting Mrs Stawman firstname.lastname@example.org
