Careers Education – Ages 11-16

Careers Education at Ratcliffe commences early in Year 7 and carries on through to Year 13. 

The aim of Careers Education and guidance at Ratcliffe is to enable students to make well informed choices about careers and to be well prepared to make transitions through their career exploration. 

The Careers programme falls under the remit of the whole school PSHCE Programme.  Miss Tiffany Spencer is both Head of PSHCE and Careers, this provides our students with continuity throughout their pastoral and careers programme during their time at Ratcliffe.   

There is a dedicated Careers Office, in which students can utilize, should they have any queries or questions.  Should further investigation be required, we have a membership with a professional careers company that offers full career support and guidance, which is available to our parents and students. 

The Careers sessions are tailored to each year group to ensure a gradual introduction into the world of work.  The full programme is available on our Parent Portal along with further information on the sessions.  Morrisby Profiling documents and work experience applications can also be found below. – NEED TO ADD PDFs
