iCollege Careers Programme

iCollege is committed to providing students with high quality careers information, advice and guidance to inspire and support them to be happy and successful in their chosen careers.

Careers education is an integral part of Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education (PSHCE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) delivered through teacher-led group sessions, guest presenters, employability workshops, work experience, careers events, employer visits and individual appointments. The DfE Careers Guidance (January ’23) stipulates that secondary age pupils must receive independent careers advice from properly qualified careers professionals. iCollege facilitate a broad range of encounters with external careers guidance professionals to ensure young people have up to date, unbiased and accurate information.

Please see KS3 KS4 & KS5 Careers Commitment documents for range of encounters and events.
