We have a qualified careers teacher and employment pathways leader on site 2 days a week!




  • We are certified to deliver over 500 AQA Action lifeskills and employment courses, plus we are certified to write our own - all students complete a portfolio and gain certficates in a mixture of life areas (such as managing money, household organistion and travel training) and personal interests.  
  • We access employability days at various university and colleges due to our qualified leader's connections and our link with the Bravura Group 
  • We deliver qualifications via diploma training that is a combination of online, face to face and on location. The subject choices are wide but animal care, beauty therapy and photograpghy are particularly popular. Once students are 16 some courses lead to insurable workplace qualifications. 

Careers advice is also provided by an externally funded provider (U-Explore and we are actively working towards achieving all of the Gatsby benchmarks as detailed in the DFE publication that you can download below.


Due to the vulnerability of our students, we have to carefully intertwine aspects such as work experience with their occupational therapy and mental health programmes. This team approach means that before transfer to college all students will have created a CV, carried out at least one placement and recieved feedback, experienced an interview prior to their college interview day, spent sessions with our external provider looking at the skills they have and the potential careers open to them in the future.
