At The Rubicon Centre we provide students with a wide range of careers education opportunities.
Our PSHCE curriculum has specific career based units of work, with identified learning objectives, outcomes and related activities. Alongside this students have a number of opportunities to experience work related activities both within the school environment and through external visits.
We employ an independent careers advisor who provides students with 1:1 careers support, advice, and guidance.
The DfE released a new statutory guidance document in January 2018, including a number of new requirements for school careers programmes, most of which are to be met by the end of 2020.
The most immediate requirement is for all schools to have a policy for 'Provider Access' that sets out the arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.
At The Rubicon Centre we work with a wide range of organisations already but we are always looking for opportunities to further broaden access to information, advice and guidance. We therefore welcome continued input from both existing and potential new partners alike.
Our current careers policy can be found under the policies section of our website.
