Careers Programme

Career Information, Advice and Guidance

At Bury CE High School we strive to ‘create better communities, transforming lives for good’ so that our pupils leave us well equipped to make a positive impact in society.

Our careers programme aims to:

  • support pupils’ interests
  • highlight pupils’ strengths
  • raise aspiration
  • enable pupils to make informed decisions about their future

We know that it is essential our pupils are given lots of opportunities to find out about their Post-16 options. One way in which we aim to do this is by providing high quality careers education and we understand that it has a critical role to play in our curriculum and in the extra-curricular activities we provide.

In January 2018 the Government introduced ‘The Gatsby Benchmarks’. The 8 benchmarks focus on improving careers guidance and education for all young people. At Bury CE High School we are committed to meeting these benchmarks for our young people and we are working with lots of different agencies to enable us to do this.

Bury CE High School has an ever expanding, rich and varied careers programme; that includes:

  • meeting industry experts, colleges and universities
  • dedicated career days which are delivered through our Deeper Learning Day programme
  • 1-2-1 careers advice and guidance
  • an array of trips and visits throughout the year
  • Careers Fair and Mock Interview Evening
  • mentoring programmes

and much more!

As we continue to develop our careers provision, we would welcome any support from local organisations/ businesses, colleges and further/ higher educational institutes. If you are interested in supporting our young people you can find out more information here.
