Careers at Ridgeway
Career Lead: Mrs H Dixon [email protected]
At Ridgeway, careers information, advice and guidance is interwoven into the curriculum in all years from 7 -13. The majority of careers education is delivered through the comprehensive mentoring programmes, which are supplemented by several Immersion Days throughout the year. All students also have access to Unifrog ‘the complete destinations platform’ for career research and career skills development. The Careers Lead for the school works closely with the Careers & Enterprise Company and the Enterprise Advisor in order to provide employer contact and opportunities to experience the workplace and wider world of work. In addition, students are able to access events and study days provided by local universities. All activities are intended to give our students a broad and impartial exposure to careers and encourage them to have high aspirations in accordance with the eight Gatsby Benchmarks.
Students also have access to an independent careers guidance counsellor. To contact Polly:
