Welcome to the Careers Section of the School Website
Careers education prepares you for the world after school. This includes thinking about how you look after yourself as an adult, how you relate to other people and how you fit into society.
At TAHS the Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) provision is centred on our Future Intentions Programme which has three distinct stages.
All Year 11 students will be given a wide range of impartial information to make informed choices about their future. This will include an appointment with a level 6 qualified careers advisor. We also hold an annual future intentions evening where we liaise with local and specialist national colleges, training providers, employers and the voluntary sector to ensure that students can research a wide range of options.
Students have access to a wide range of resources to support them with their career decisions in the Future Intentions careers library on Microsoft Teams and also within the Careers classroom.
We have provided a number of links on this website to keep you up to date with the Careers' education at Thomas Alleyne's.
The updated provider access legislation (PAL) specifies schools must provide at least six encounters for all their students:
- Two encounters for pupils during the ‘first key phase’ (year 8 or 9) that are mandatory for all pupils to attend
- Two encounters for pupils during the ‘second key phase’ (year 10 or 11) that are mandatory for all pupils to attend
- Two encounters for pupils during the ‘third key phase’ (year 12 or 13) that are mandatory for the school to put on but optional for pupils to attend
The new legislation will become a key mechanism to further help learners understand and take-up, not just apprenticeships, but wider technical education options such as T-Levels and Higher Technical Qualifications.
