Careers guidance

During Key Stage 4 pupils' thoughts turn more towards their adult lives. Our aim is to offer individual, impartial advice and support focusing on the three fronts below.

Careers education

Giving pupils the skills and knowledge they need to make appropriate educational and/or occupational choices. This is delivered through the PSHE programme.

Post-16 education

The vibrant and increasingly popular Sixth Form at LVS Ascot offers a wide range of A levels and BTEC qualifications that link closely to the GCSE options available. Advice on post-16 opportunities will be discussed early in Year 11 by the Head of Sixth Form and the Director of Studies.

Careers guidance

Offering individual, impartial advice and support as pupils make personal decisions about their future. Formal Careers education began in Year 9 and this continues through to Year 11 when pupils study application routes for Higher Education in addition to learning how to make appropriate career choices at post-16 and beyond.

The school careers adviser is available regularly throughout the spring and summer terms. Careers surgeries are held offering individual guidance and there is an extensive collection of resources in the Careers section of the Learning Resource Centre.

There is also the opportunity for pupils to undertake the Morrisby Psychometric test which uses their abilities and personality measures, as well as their interests.

The careers office is located in the Sixth Form area. Appointments for careers advice can be made by contacting Careers advice via email: Simon.Moore@lvs.ascot.sch.uk
