Careers and Progression
At Waldegrave School, we are committed to delivering a stable Careers Programme which raises aspirations, broadens horizons and breaks down stereotypes. We seek to support our students to gain the necessary skills and experience to help them navigate the opportunities and challenges of the future world of work. Our careers provision ensures that all students from Year 7 through to Year 13 have access to a high quality careers programme which meets the individual's needs of students by providing; encounters with employers, further & higher education providers, experience of workplaces, access to up-to-date career and progression information & resources, links careers with the curriculum, and provides independent & impartial personal guidance. We are proud of the work that we do with students.
Waldegrave School is an ‘Investor in Careers’ school. We are currently working towards reaccrediation for the next three years. This highlights our commitment to careers education and we welcome the opportunity of the accreditation process to further develop our current provision.
