Events and opportunities at Chipping Sodbury School

A fulfilling careers program is vital in schools to help students develop the skills and ability to make the most appropriate education choices for their options within school, progression beyond school and in working life. We work with all students in all year groups and our careers program is delivered in a variety of ways. This is rolled out through our Life program, further educational visits which includes a number of activities from guest speakers to a whole school careers event for all year groups.

Careers road map

Careers student action plan

We have an impartial careers advisor who sees all year 10 students on a one to one basis. The detailed report is uploaded onto Go4schools for parents/carers and students to revisit.

  • Two career notice boards are situated around the school which are regularly updated with information, courses available and job and apprenticeship opportunities. These are located in the Sixth Form block and outside D6.
  • Each classroom has posters promoting career pathways within each subject.
