Careers Intro

Vision
To ensure pupils, their parents carers, are informed and prepared to achieve aspirational next steps into adulthood and the world of work.

Our core aims:

  • All students, parents carers and teachers have access to careers information, advice and guidance.
  • All students are accessing and engaged in a meaningful and developmental careers education curriculum programme.
  • All students’ transition to a variety of positive destinations.

The Mendip School has a crucial role to play in preparing students for transitions for their next stage of education, training or employment. Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are an important and integral part of all students’ entitlement and learning to aid their personal development.

Through a planned careers education programme, we are committed to providing the appropriate activities and experiences to enable students to make well-informed decisions and successful transitions in life and work. We support pupils to prepare for their preferred transitional pathway whether that is to continue with further education, employment, training or living independently. We have a person-centred approach to student outcomes through our EHCP annual reviews process, where we work with all stakeholders to shape clear and ambitious targets for pupils to prepare for their next steps.  At The Mendip School our careers programme is known as ‘Futures’

Futures is led by our Careers leader, Rachel Findlay – rfindlay@themendipschool.com  01749 838040
