Careers and Advice
In the current economic climate it is important that you give yourself the best possible chance to find information about all the education and training you can access when you leave school. At Belvidere we ensure that all our students and their parents are provided with useful information and guidance to help with those important career choices.
Independent IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) is available in Belvidere School to provide advice on the following:
• options in years 9, 10 & 11
• career pathways
• study programmes / college courses
• apprenticeships / employment opportunities
• Higher Education and RPA (Raising of the Participation Age)
This is done in school, by Paul Stanton, a registered careers advisor from the independent Careers Development Institute (CDI). Paul is in school one day each week alternating between Wednesday and Thursday, during term time and can be found in the office between room 36/37. Appointments can be made and there is an additional drop in facility at break, lunch time and after school. Paul is also available during our options evening and parents evenings should you wish to seek advice. Appointments can be made by contacting the school reception.
RPA is Government legislation where all year 11 leavers are required to remain in education, training or employment with accredited training until their 18th birthday.
If you would like further information regarding RPA, please contact the school’s careers adviser via 01743 235073, or see - https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/raising-the-participation-age
