Careers Education & Guidance

Red House is committed to preparing its pupils for further and higher education and for the world of work through a planned programme of Careers Education and Guidance.

Through this programme, following the Gatsby Benchmarks, pupils are prepared for life beyond the classroom, offering them opportunities to become acquainted with the types of decisions and choices which will face them in the future. Pupils are encouraged to take an active role in their own career learning as well as providing them with excellent support. Careers Education and Guidance is delivered in Years 7-11 as part of the PHSE programme.

Pupils are provided with independent guidance, via the Unifrog platform. Additionally, pupils may take part in careers and post-16 programmes, such as The Spires Co-Curricular Club, Next Steps Careers Club or they may attend careers events, such as, Tees Valley Skills – a careers event involving the leading providers of work, education and training in the local area.

In Year 11, local Sixth Form Colleges, Colleges of Further Education and other Tees Valley learning providers are invited to speak to pupils and give advice on courses and other post 16 options. Events such as a programme of guest speakers, ‘Be Inspired’ programme, take place throughout the year to raise awareness of different careers and the world of work.

The careers guidance programme is managed by the Assistant Head (Academic).


"The current careers programme, ‘Be Inspired’, sees guest speakers including alumnae and parents coming into school to raise pupils’ awareness of the world of work and possible careers. There are also a number of clubs which inform pupils about various career paths and further education opportunities."
