Promoting a career development culture is an essential part of the mission and ethos of BCSF. We aim to support the aspirations of all our students and to ensure that they gain the knowledge, skills and experience they need to make progress and succeed in learning and employment. We believe that effective careers education, information and guidance not only contributes to the well-being of individuals but also to the wellbeing of their families, the communities to which they belong, wider society, businesses and the economy.

Our careers provision consists of the following:

  • Work experience - students are given the opportunity to attend one week of work experience in a chosen field, there are also alternative opportunities for students to gain experiences of the workplace
  • Weekly careers presentations delivered by a range of professionals from a wide range of aspirational job roles
  • University visits and talks
  • Careers guidance meetings with impartial careers advisors
  • Careers Learning through our personal development curriculum
  • Knowledge of how careers links to their a-level subjects delivered in lessons throughout the year

All students are registered to Unifrog & have dedicated sessions throughout the year to use the platform as well as using this outside of lessons. Unifrog enables students to research their options and make informed choices about Higher Education and Apprenticeships with respect to future pathways.
