Investor in Careers
Woodlane has successfully achieved the 'Investors in Careers Award'!
The ‘Investor in Careers’ kite mark is a nationally recognised quality standard that shows we are educating and providing guidance related to pupils’ futures. We were assessed over our ability to inform pupils about the wealth of careers in the world and their future options after school. We received high praise across the school and were able to demonstrate that we have a comprehensive careers programme for all pupils. The school was showcased at a panel presentation as a leading provider of careers education and five pupils successfully spoke to a group of experts about their experiences.
Very few schools achieve this high accolade and we are working hard to ensure we maintain these high standards. We were commended for our theme days, school policy, college link, travel training and independence programme, as well as our whole school approach. The pupils who met with the assessor explained how the school was helping them become confident and independent young adults who are prepared to go on to college or work placements after they leave school.
As part of our continued drive to keep standards high. We have devised entitlement statements for the school in relation to Careers Education. These are included within pupil diaries and detail our commitment to providing high quality, independent and personalised careers education for all pupils, preparing them for the demands of adult life.
