Careers & Work Related Learning
We recognise the importance of preparing pupils properly for their working life. Careers guidance is provided to all pupils through group work and through one to one careers advice in Years 10 and 11. Careers advice is provided by a qualified independent careers advisor.
The PSHE programme is also used to allow pupils to think about the 'world of work' and which qualifications will help them to enter different career paths.
We work closely with our Sixth Form provider, Godalming College, to support the further education application and transition process through the curriculum. All of our pupils are guaranteed a place at the outstanding Godalming College on a suitable course when they leave Woolmer Hill.
Our current Work Experience programme ensures that all Year 10 pupils complete a week of work experience in the Summer term. Placements take place at a wide variety of local, and not so local businesses, and give pupils the experience of life in the work place.
Pupils have individual careers guidance and support in Years 10 and 11 with regard to careers choices and post-16 applications.
The National Careers website has a number of useful guides and tools that are also very good.
