At Chertsey High School we are committed to ensuring all students have access to impartial careers advice, support in school and access to employers and the workplace.

Impartial careers advice in school is provided by Innervate. We work with the local Enterprise Coordinator from Enterprise M3 LEP. Our careers provision is based on the Gatsby Benchmarks as recommended in the DfE’s Careers Strategy (December 2017) and the Statutory Guidance for Careers (January 2018).

 

Local Market Information January 2020

The Office for National Statistics has just produced the latest Local Market Information (LMI) for our area. This has been shared with us by the Enterprise M3 LEP who are funded by the government to support our growing Careers provision. This information covers West Surrey and Hampshire, and gives very interesting detail about the jobs market that our students will be entering when they leave education. The report is attached - the students in year 9 will be examining this with their tutors over the next week so please do feel free to have a discussion about it with your child.

Aims of our Careers Provision

The main aims of the programme are to:

  • Provide a planned programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance for students of all ages
  • Give access to independent and impartial information on opportunities in learning and work
  • Give individualised careers guidance and support.
  • Provide experience of the workplace to develop key employability skills.
  • Identify and reduce the likelihood, through a variety of interventions, of students becoming NEET (not in employment, education or training) when they leave us.
  • Ensure students have interactions with a variety of colleges, training providers, employers and universities in order to make informed decisions.

 

To enable us to meet these aims we provide the following careers programme and support:

Labour Market Information

Labour market information is readily available online, and can be used to check whether a student’s preferred career path is one which will be in demand in the future. It also provides useful information on salaries, working hours and practices, and common tasks in each field of work. A link to the latest labour market information will be provided in the near future.
