Careers and Guidance

Have you thought about your future?

College? Sixth Form? Apprenticeship?

What is your ideal job? What careers interest you?

The school contact for Careers Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance (CEIAG) is:

Miss K Barratt (Assistant Headteacher)

Tel: 0161 789 4565

Email: ephsgeneral@consilium-at.com

 

Overview:

Consilium Academies is working with its schools to develop appropriate access arrangements which make sure all students have the chance to access a range of opportunities that provide advice and guidance on careers, including academic and technical qualifications and apprenticeships.

Our preference is to provide events that cover all opportunities and allow students to receive a balanced approach to career guidance. During this period of development, Ellesmere Park High School will allow access to recognised education and training providers to talk to students in Years 8-11 about appropriate approved programmes. The provider should email their request to the email address on the contact us page of the website, providing a range of dates and an overview of what will be offered. Unless this coincides with a scheduled career event, any additional opportunities will be offered to students & their parents at the end of the school day. Providers should be prepared to produce information, flyers, and presentations for students and parents in advance of the event as well as contact information as the school/trust will not be able to operate as a broker/manage attendance registers etc.

 

How does the school measure and assess the impact of the careers programme on students?

At EPHS we use the Careers Compass and tracker tool to monitor and evaluate our practice against the Gatsby Benchmarks, collect student and employer feedback on CEIAG experiences and monitor NEET figures to assess the impact of our provision.

 

How you as an employer can help us…

At EPHS, we are committed to the wider Greater Manchester Strategy.

"That all our young people will successfully transition out of secondary school life ready and equipped for work and life-long learning."

As an employer, you can play a significant part in helping us achieve our goal.

If you are interested in providing any of the following, we would be delighted to hear from you.

  • Work Experience
  • Careers Talks
  • Student Mentoring
  • Offering a work place visit
  • Providing resources/sponsorships 

Alumni:

It is always interesting to learn about the career journeys of our former students which helps inspire our students to see what they too can achieve.  If you would be happy to share your career path once leaving school, please email the careers lead Katharine.barratt@consilium-at.com
