As a school, we are committed to enabling our students to do this by providing them with the very best opportunities during their time with us, but also by equipping them with as much information, advice and guidance about their future choices and progression routes as possible.
Our students have access to careers guidance and information from their first day with us in Year 7 until they move on to further education or training after their examinations in Year 11. In reality, it doesn’t always end there as we are very happy to help past students where we can too!
We have a team of people in school lead by Assistant Vice Principal, Mrs Hardy and outside of school too including the Prospects Service and City of York Council’s Careers Service. We also have a fully stocked careers library and can point you in the right direction when you’re looking online at the wealth of careers information out there.
Our careers guidance and information is impartial, confidential and always provided by a qualified careers adviser. And most importantly it is focussed on the individual student.
Vale of York adheres to the Baker Clause Policy Statement stipulating that schools must ensure that a “range of education and training providers” have access to students from year 7 to year 13 so that the students can be informed of the technical education and apprenticeships options that are available to them post 16.
