In recent years many a news article has focused on the changing world of work: we are led to believe that many jobs are soon going to be taken over by robots and young people are regularly told ‘the jobs you’ll have when you enter the workforce don’t even exist yet!’ While the nature of work is certainly changing, schools and parents can most definitely help their children prepare with optimism for life beyond full-time education.
At The Cotswold School careers education and guidance is woven throughout the daily curriculum and is also delivered through specific activities and off-timetable days. Sound careers advice and higher education guidance are given in both groups and on a one-to-one basis to ensure the students are well prepared for their life after The Cotswold School. Career days and fairs and links with local businesses along with guest speakers from universities, colleges and business partners all help our students to make the right choices.
OUR POPULAR CAREERS EVENINGS TAKE PLACE ANNUALLY IN OCTOBER IN THE SPORTS HALL, 5.30 to 8.00 pm
We are always keen to expand our repertoire and would, therefore, be delighted with any offers of help in giving our students insight into a variety of workplaces. If you can help by offering to talk with our students or by offering a work shadowing placement, please contact our Careers Co-ordinator, Mr Phil White, on firstname.lastname@example.org
