________________________________ Careers


At Riverside Bridge School, in line with the Government’s careers strategy, we aim to make sure that all pupils, from the age of 4 to 16 access a bespoke education through our development of a Careers Curriculum.
We believe high quality careers advice and practical support in terms of access (e.g. pupils are supported with arranging and attending college interviews and visits), is absolutely essential if pupils are going to achieve their potential in their future life.

Work Experience

Pupils in Year 10 & 11 l have the opportunity to engage in work experience.
This opportunity to go and work in the wider community is invaluable and allows our pupils:
•  to apply the transferable skills learned in the classroom in a real-life context.
•  to further improve their skills by making learning more relevant and practical
•  to develop their personal and social skills
•  to develop an understanding of work and its related responsibilities
•  to broaden their awareness of the world of work
•  to be introduced the knowledge and skills of particular occupational area/s
•  to begin to make the transition from school
 Here are our  Year 11 pupils working in the Cooking & Nutrition department at Riverside Bridge School, at Wellgate Farm and Morrisons.


Impact of our Careers Programme

Careers activity needs to be relevant and inspirational for our pupils. We measure and assess the impact of our careers programme through:
We track our Year 11 school leavers each summer to confirm post-16 plans, and we aim to have as few ‘NEET’ (Not in Education, Employment or Training) destinations as possible.
A strong investment in our careers programme reflects our positive destination figures.
