Careers education gives pupils the skills, knowledge and understanding to manage their own lifelong learning and career development

Risedale School

At Risedale we aim to provide all our pupils with a comprehensive Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme, using the Careers Development Institute framework and the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks, in line with Department for Education (DfE) guidelines. We have a dedicated Careers Leader, Helen Porritt (full-time) situated within our Careers Office, available to see pupils and discuss their future pathways. The school achieved a Quality in Careers Standard award in March 2019. Our careers programme is reviewed every year in line with statutory guidelines issued by the DfE to ensure we are delivering up to date information (next review July 2021).

Due to COVID-19 most information is currently being provided electronically. Eg. College open evenings are being held virtually online and information is being sent out to pupils/parents/carers by email/Google Classroom/text etc.
