Sixth Form Career Support

Post 16 pupils receive one to one guidance and support throughout the time on their chosen study programme. This allows pupils to fully explore, all pathways prior to completion of their course. These include university, higher apprenticeship and employment opportunities.

Pupils in all years, and students in the Sixth Form, receive high-quality careers information and guidance.

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

At Chase High we are committed to providing good quality careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and work-related learning (WRL) for all students in years 12 to 14. We measure ourselves using the Gatsby Benchmarks which is a Careers Bench Mark Tool implemented by the DFS. The eight benchmarks provide us with a framework that helps us to identify our strengths and areas that we can develop.

The careers programme combines career planning lessons, skills workshops, one-to-one independent careers guidance, mentoring, online career information resources and a wide range of events and activities, including: sector career talks, employer visits, careers fair, inspirational speakers, enterprise activities, career advice evenings and work experience.


Our Head of Careers & Sixth Form Pastoral Support, Wendy Krusche, leads, facilitates and promotes our careers programme throughout the school. Wendy Krusche is part of the steering group at the local authority for Careers Enterprise through the area. Our school is recognised as a lead within the area.

Start of Autumn Term 2020
Our first priority when students return is to help them feel safe in the school environment and re-establish strong routines in terms of learning and expectations. The government has provided guidelines recently that we will take on board to ensure that there is a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum for the whole school community. We will ensure that gaps in learning are addressed over the course of the academic year and that a gradual acceleration of learning will mean no pupil is disadvantaged. Our plans at the moment include a staggered start to the term to allow for a smooth integration to the school timetable as well as establish new routines in a measured approach. Please see our Letters to Parents for more information regarding the staggered start to the new term.
