Careers at Verulam
Verulam is committed to providing the highest quality careers provision and is working towards ensuring that the government’s required Gatsby Benchmarks are in place within our extensive careers programme.
We firmly believe that it is our role to ensure students are informed, have opportunities to reflect, have access to a wide range of careers opportunities and are thus able to make informed choices about each step of their career. In this regard we are building on a history of successfully meeting the needs of all our students.

- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounters with employers and employees
- Experiences of workplaces
- Encounters with further and higher education
- Personal guidance

How We Measure Impact
We believe that it is important to regularly review the impact that the Careers Programme has on students and to use this information to constantly improve our delivery across all year groups, to all ability levels and to the sub-groupings within these.
We believe that all staff are able to make an invaluable contribution to developing our students’ personal understanding of the world of work, their transition through the school’s Key Stages and their individual future career pathway.
To achieve this, our intention is to complete a combination of the following reviews, to publish the findings and use them to progress our delivery of the school’s Careers Programme.

|Careers Enterprise |
|Face to face panel with CEC, AECOM||10 students from across all years||Every 6 Months|
