We are thrilled to announce that Etone College has been awarded the Quality in Careers Standard. This means that we join an elite group of 166 secondary schools & colleges accredited in the UK, in holding this award. We are especially proud to be the only accredited school in Nuneaton and the only secondary in the Warwickshire area.
By holding the national Quality in Careers Standard, our parents can be assured that we provide pupils with careers support which is of the very best quality.
To achieve the national award, our Careers programme and support has been assessed by the awarding body in line with the rigorous criteria set. Assessments are made against national assessment criteria, fully incorporating the Gatsby Benchmarks for “Good Careers Guidance” and schools are tasked to evidence how their careers programme positively impacts their pupils futures.
As holders of the Quality in Careers Standards have also shown that our careers provision:
- has strong leadership and overview from the Head Teacher, the senior leadership team and the governing body
- has effective training for staff involved in planning and delivering the careers programme
- is inclusive of all pupils and students
Employers, as well as further and higher education providers, must be involved in the programme to increase students’ understanding of a wide range of options, routes and providers of apprenticeships, internships, colleges, and universities.
Although we are of course very happy to share this achievement we have always strived to offer the best careers guidance to our pupils, regardless of circumstance.
