Careers Team at Severn Vale
At Severn Vale School we are committed to providing our students with a high level of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance and as a result we are very proud to hold a Gold Award from the Quality in Careers Standard (award by Career Mark in 2020).
Students are supported not only by Mrs Virginia Martin (Careers Leader) and Nicky Oakey (Careers Administrator) but also by Mr Hockaday and his Futures team. The aim of our careers provision is to encourage students to make realistic career choices, be aware of the opportunities and experiences available to them and to give them the confidence to make decisions about their futures.
All students by the time they leave Year 11 will have had at least one careers guidance meeting with our independent careers advisor, Mrs Blackburn and students can request additional guidance at any time. The school works to achieve the eight Gatsby career benchmarks in collaboration with the local business community, the University of Gloucestershire and our local Post-16 providers. We also have an Enterprise advisor, Lauren Mead from Dialog Semiconductors (UK) Ltd. to support our careers initiatives.
