At Everest we believe it is crucial for students to think about their life and career post year 11. Being 'future ready' is one of our five strategic aims. We have an on-site careers advisor who meets with all of our students on an individual basis and provides them with a bespoke careers package so that our students understand exactly what they need to do to reach their goals. We also have excellent links with the Southern Universities Network who offer courses and workshops to guide pupils to make the appropriate choices for their future.
- A programme of impartial 1:1 careers advice and guidance.
- Regular visits to a wide range of local colleges.
- Talks from representatives from employers as well as from further and higher education institutions.
- Opportunities for apprenticeship talks and employer visits.
- Careers as a core part of our pastoral programme.
- Targetted work experience for identified students.
- Interview skills sessions and job application workshops.

We measure the impact of our careers guidance annually looking specifically at the progression pathways of students from KS4 to further education and employment. All evaluation is completed with the support of the Gatsby ‘Good Career Guidance’ programme. The next review of our careers programme will commence at the start of the 2019-20 academic year.
