College Focus Week
Our Futures Roadshow for Year 11 has been unable to go ahead in the normal way this year due to Covid 19. Therefore, we invited the local colleges to send us some recorded videos and links to resources for us to share with the learners. You can access these in the folders below. We encourage learners to check college websites for dates of open evenings and for deadlines to apply.
Our careers advisor, Steph Senior, is in school and is available to meet with learners every Tuesday and Wednesday. Learners should request an appointment through their form tutor if they would like further advice and support.
Buxton and Leek College
Longdendale High School is committed to providing high quality careers education, information, advice and guidance to every learner. We have a sharp focus on careers and the guidance we offer is tailored to the needs of the individual learner to promote self-awareness, decision making, employability skills, and independence whilst raising aspirations. It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities which are appropriate to learners’ stages of career learning, planning and development. Learners are entitled to CEIAG which meets professional standards of practice and which is person-centred, impartial and confidential. Our aim is for all learners to leave Longdendale High School equipped with the skills and knowledge required to support their entry into further education or employment. All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 pathways that are suitable for them and to be able to manage their careers and sustain employability throughout their lives.
It's never too early to start thinking about your options after Longdendale. In this folder are some activities and resources to help you to explore the different options out there and where there are most job opportunities in our local area.
