Careers

Redden Court offers a very wide and comprehensive career education. We are committed to the governments Gatsby report findings and are implementing their findings to meet the 8 standards outlined in the report (a link to the report can be found below and our Careers Policy can be found in Policies on our website). We provide access for students to impartial and independent information about the range of education and training options that will help them achieve their ambitions. We, as a school, provide information and guidance in a variety of subjects and skills to allow our students to reach a career that suits them best. This also includes one-to-one guidance with a specialist Careers Adviser. Our careers education is overseen by one of our Assistant Headteachers and our staff also have regular training to ensure they are up-to-date on current market information and changes to both post-16 and post-18 options.
