At Granville we believe good Careers and Impartial Advice and Guidance (IAG) are essential for all young people throughout their education.  Impartial careers guidance is a major factor in raising aspirations and developing a ‘can do’ resilient attitude. These qualities will encourage pupils to become more engaged in opportunities available at school, in the local community and further afield. 

Alongside reaching their academic potential, we want every child to leave Granville with a full range of outstanding ‘employability’ skills such as self-motivation, team work and entrepreneurial skills. 

Through their Character and Well-being lessons all pupils receive regular, structured Careers Education from Year 7 through to Year 11. In addition specialists from a variety of Post 16 and 18 providers frequently present to or work with whole year groups or small groups. These sessions are followed up during lessons to embed the information further and allow for additional issues to be discussed.  

Individuals can request a careers interview with Susanne Tracey, our Careers Adviser, either by asking their Form Tutor or completing a self-referral form. Susanne is in school every Wednesday.  

We are in the process of developing an overview of IAG across the whole school and sharing good practice with local secondary schools.
