In late July 2014, St Joseph’s Catholic School were re- inspected for the quality of the careers advice and guidance we deliver to our pupils. I am delighted to report that for the 2nd year running our assessor has ‘without reservation’ awarded our school with this prestigious kite mark.
“St Joseph’s give a very impressive account of why what they do is right for their students; they are confident in their judgements as their evaluation is continuous and wide ranging. Their programme has numerous strengths. The co-ordinator has extensive links both in school and with employers/colleges, and uses these to devise innovative activities. The focus on 1:1 support is considerable and clearly appreciated by students; they feel supported and known as individuals which for many has a clear link to confidence”.
We are one of the few schools in the country to achieve the award and this is credit to Mrs Welfare and Mrs Glover in particular who have driven careers education forward continuously for many years.
