WHAT IS IT?
Careers/IAG is to help students think about and plan their future; Careers/IAG is to help students find out which pathway is best for them. To enable good understanding and positive attitudes, we aim to engage with parents and give them access to Careers: Bill Law’s ‘Community Interaction Theory’ states how our perceptions about careers are gained from within our communities. By working in partnership we hope to ensure positive outcomes for all our students.
At Tabor we aim to provide timely, impartial advice and guidance.

CAREERS PLANNING INFORMATION: USEFUL WEBSITES
Pathways is the term used to refer to the different paths students may take. At secondary school these will occur at KS4 & KS5. Pathways are the qualifications with their levels and the routes that students can take to acquire them.
Look at the ‘Levels and Qualifications’ table showing these pathways.
Choosing an appropriate pathway will involve choosing an appropriate course and where to do it.
The school evaluates the careers provision through students and parent feedback, LEAN advice and self-evaluations. These are recorded on Compass+ software to allow all careers data to be stored in one location.
The careers provision is evaluated annually, with the next review due on the 1st July 2021.
