What support is there to help my child prepare for the future?
Preparation should start as soon as possible – long before your child becomes an adult.
From the start of your child’s time at Calday Grange Grammar School they will study dedicated Careers lessons as part of our Personal Development programme.
Each student in Year 9 upwards has the opportunity to sign up for a one-to-one career’s appointment with our trained careers advisor who will tailor the meeting and feedback to their post-school intentions.
When your child leaves Calday Grange Grammar School at either 16 or 18 years of age, they are likely to have some or all of the following options available to them:
- Further education at a college or university provider
- Apprenticeship – An apprenticeship is a way to gain the skills, knowledge and expertise you need to get into many careers. They combine work, training and study, letting you ‘earn while you learn’. Apprenticeships are available across a range of areas.
- Traineeship – Usually a 6-month programme made up of extended work experience working towards qualifications. A traineeship will normally lead to an apprenticeship or work.
- Supported Internship – Supported Internships are a study programme for learners with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). Learners will have a work placement and complete relevant qualifications alongside their placement.
