Parents

As a parent and carer you play a pivotal role in helping your child to make an informed decision about their future. In order to support them in realising their goals and aspirations it is vital that you have access to up to date information regarding the options open to your child on leaving school. As a school we will ensure that we communicate all upcoming careers related events to you via the following formats:

  • Parentmail and text alerts

  • Relevant professionals and organisations at parents’ evenings.

  • Parent information sessions

  • St Bernard’s School Website – calendar of events.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate in contacting Mrs Whittam via email: jwhittam@st-bernards.cumbria.sch.uk

 

 

Providers

In order to deliver an engaging and informative careers programme of study it is essential that we engage as many local employers and providers of post 16 destinations as possible. This is an integral part of the implementation of the Gatsby Benchmarks. If you are a provider who would like to contribute to the delivery of our current careers programme please contact Mrs Whittam via email:

jwhittam@st-bernards.cumbria.sch.uk. You can also view more information on our careers programme by visiting our curriculum page. Our provider access arrangements can also be viewed within our policy pages.

 

Teachers

Regardless of our position in school and our subject area we are all teachers of careers information, advice and guidance. We should all be working towards inspiring and raising the aspirations of all of our students by being willing to engage and discuss the range of career opportunities open to our students. This dialogue will enhance and support our current careers programme of study. In order to inform your discussions with students the following sources of information may be useful:
