Newland Careers Programme 2020-2021

Our careers programme consists of; school based activities led by internal staff, events involving external partners (such as colleges, alumni, training providers, employers, and universities) and external visits.  Due to the current circumstances relating to the Covid-19 pandemic we have unfortunately had to postpone some of our planned activities for the autumn term (red).  Some activities such as careers assemblies and open events planned for autumn term have been moved to virtual events where possible, similarly planned activities for the spring term are currently under review and where possible we are developing virtual alternatives (amber).  Activities led by internal staff are able to go ahead as planned, this is also the case for one to one guidance appointments which are being delivered virtually (green).  

 We will continue to monitor the ever changing situation and amend our provision accordingly closer to the Spring / Summer Terms.

Due to the level of planning and organisation required to deliver a successful work experience programme, we are doubtful that we will be able to proceed with work experience in the summer term, we are therefore looking at virtual alternatives to be delivered in Spring.

If you have any queries or would like any further information on our careers programme please email careers@yhclt.net
