Information, Advice & Guidance

 

At Wolverley CE Secondary School, we believe in offering as many opportunities as possible to our students in order to prepare them for their future lives and potential careers.

With the development of our new bespoke facility, the IAG Centre, we feel we can offer students access to relevant and impartial careers guidance, along with support and information sessions from an outside support agency called ‘Reach Out’.

The ethos of the centre is to equip all young people with the appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding to progress to the next stage of education, employment and/or training.

Work Experience

As a school, we are keen to offer the opportunity of work experience to our students and are more than willing to assist and support those students who pursue it. We see it as an opportunity for students to gain a valuable insight into early career exploration plus a chance to acquire and practice fundamental employability skills.

Work Experience in Year 10 usually takes place during the penultimate week of the Summer term and is optional. Students are welcome to source suitable placements from within the community or with family/friends, however they can speak with us directly in school enabling us to offer support in securing a placement.  For those students who do not wish to participate in work experience, we arrange a programme that allows students to explore what life might be like Post 16 e.g. 6th form taster lessons, University visits and a careers fair.

Work Experience in Year 12 is compulsory and usually takes place for 2 weeks at the end of the Summer term. Students in Year 12 are encouraged to find their own placements, however we can offer assistance should the need arise.


ReachOut Support Services at Wolverley

Our Reach Out team provide one to one emotional support to students who are experiencing difficulties and need someone to talk to and offload.

Our volunteers are very experienced and trained in areas that can help with specific issues and provide techniques to help with anxiety, low self esteem and stress. Students may be having problems with break ups familly/friendships, bullying, what ever the problem, our aim at Reach Out is to provide the best possible support and help we can.

How to get referred: via School, heads of year/pastoral staff, parental referral, self, friends or email us direct at reach-out@mail.com and ask for Andrea or Dani.
