We have achieved the Quality in Careers Standard Award
St. Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls achieves quality standard for careers work
This summer St. Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls has been recognised for its outstanding careers work. The school has been awarded the national Quality in Careers Standard awarded under licence by Ixion (Part of the Shaw Trust Group). The Quality in Careers Standard is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their life after school.
St. Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls is an Ofsted Outstanding school, continually working to improve the chances and opportunities of all the students. Recognising the importance of preparing students for their future careers the school began working towards the national Quality in Careers Standard.
There is a statutory duty to ‘secure independent careers guidance’ for all students from year 8 onwards and the Government also recommends that all schools should be required to work towards the national Quality in Careers Standard.
Achieving the national Quality in Careers Standard shows the head teacher, governors and leadership team at St. Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls embrace, promote and endorse quality careers education and recognise the part it plays in the overall success of the school and its students. The school offers a range of activities to introduce students to the work of work and help them make decisions about life after school.
Mrs Loveland, Headteacher of St. Anne’s Catholic High School said:
“We are ecstatic to have achieved the national Quality in Career Standard. We recognise the key role we play in working with and supporting our students to develop their knowledge, skills and experience so they are more than ready to go out into the world and achieve personal success and happiness. It is wonderful to have the external validation of the work we do – ensuring our students receive advice, practical support and experience, so they are prepared for the next stage of their education, employment, self-employment or training”.
