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.


Even though you are currently not in school, its 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.
