Careers Provision

Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (CIAG)

Due to the unique nature of the rolling cohort at SSSfN we have developed a bespoke package of support for our pupils. This aims to maximize the number of pupils who are in education, employment or training on leaving school, regardless of their time of arrival.  We have a designated Careers Lead, Denise Anderson who coordinates this work and is instrumental in the ongoing development of our offer. There are 14 Careers Champions across all of the bases who play a role in ensuring that careers education is embedded within the bases.
