Statutory requirements

The careers provision at Brook Green is in line with Section 42A of the Education Act 1997 which requires governing bodies to ensure that all pupils are provided with independent careers guidance from year 8 to year 13.

The governing body must ensure that the independent careers guidance provided:

  • Is impartial, showing no bias or favouritism towards a particular institution, education or work option,

  • Includes information on the range of education or training options, including apprenticeships and technical education routes

  • Is guidance that is in the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given.

Opportunities for Access

Parents, students and employers may access information about the careers programme through a number of organised events throughout the school year.  We will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to students at parents’ evenings, annual reviews and assemblies.

The school also has a Work Related Learning Co-ordinator who can be contacted with regard to college and work experience placements at Key Stage 4.
