One of the key measures of success for any school is the destinations data of their students as they leave and transition into their post-16 options.
Here at Shuttleworth College, we view it as essential that our young people are informed and guided in their choices so that any decisions made ensure that they get the best start. We now implement a comprehensive programme of CEIAG with the internal data below showing significant improvements.
The family of every student have an essential part to play in helping with this transition. By using the information in General Information (link) and the following links, you can help us to give your child the best start. https://www.gov.uk/careers-helpline-for-teenagers, http://www.careersadviceforparents.org, http://www.netmums.com/teenagers/careers-advice-for-teenagers, https://futurefinder.yourlife.org.uk/, and https://www.gov.uk/government/news/your-daughters-future are all great resources.
