Careers at Ashton
Careers and Personal Development is at the heart of Ashton Community Science College.
Our careers programme, tailored to follow the guidance of the Gatsby Benchmarks, is designed to raise the aspirations of all pupils in school no matter what year they are in. We also focus on nurturing self-awareness in order to prepare students for life after high school. Additionally, our offer of permanent, accessible and impartial Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) ensures that all pupils feel equipped and inspired to take on their futures.
Students, parents, teachers and employers can view our extensive Careers programme here.
We regularly evaluate our careers programme using Compass+ tool. This measures the impact of our provision on students and ensures that we are meeting all 8 Gatsby Benchmarks. We also provide students with a chance to provide feedback on MS Forms after 1:1 appointments and careers related events and trips.
