Careers Education

At Caroline Chisholm School, we provide many opportunities for our students to receive advice and guidance throughout their time at CCS, as well as for their future careers and aspirations. 

We have a variety of careers events, assemblies and trips which we run throughout the year to support all our children in their learning about careers.  From starting our careers programme in Primary, we believe we can help teach our pupils the importance of striving for their goals to achieve their desired career choice. We also hope that in doing so, every student regardless of their age or background, believes in our ethos of "everyone, every lesson, every opportunity" and that any career goals they strive for are achievable.

At Caroline Chisholm School, we believe in the power of collaboration and community support, to provide our students with the best educational experiences possible. Our business Partnership works with a range of local businesses and voluntary sector organisations to provide our young people with a rewarding and realistic introduction to the world of work. 

Together, we are committed to: 

  • Enhancing Educational Opportunities: The businesses will actively engage with our students through workshops, mentorship programs, and real-world experiences that align with our curriculum. 
  • Investing in the Future: Through financial support and in-kind contributions, local businesses will help us provide cutting-edge resources and facilities, ensuring that our students have access to the best possible education. 
  • Building Stronger Communities: We believe that a thriving community begins with a strong partnership between education and local businesses. Together, we will work to strengthen the ties that bind us and contribute to the growth and prosperity of our neighbourhood. 

We are excited about the endless possibilities that this partnership brings and the positive impact it will have on our students' lives. Together, we can shape the future of education and empower our students to achieve their dreams.
