Role Models and Catalysts for Change


Welcome from The Careers Team!


‘Leaders have established an impressive preparation for adulthood curriculum. Students in the sixth form receive carefully planned work experience opportunities. They meet many potential employers and receive excellent careers advice and guidance. They are very well prepared for their next stage of education, employment or training’ 

Ofsted Inspection Report 2021


All pupils benefit from Careers Education throughout years 7-11 and into sixth form. The curriculum, designed in collaboration by the Careers Leader and Careers Advisor, ensures that all pupils have access to a detailed programme of study as well as participating in a range of different events and opportunities which will develop their employability skills. The curriculum has been planned to ensure that pupils are fully prepared for the next stage of their lives when they leave Clare Mount. 


Careers Education lessons are delivered in Preparation for Adulthood lessons in Key Stage 3 and 4 and during Personal, Social and Development lessons in sixth form. Pupils also benefit from lessons, discussions and activities linked to careers by their subject specific teachers. 


Clare Mount prides itself on the partnerships it has formed with local employers, further education colleges and training providers. These links ensure that our pupils have continued access to encounters with employers, experiences of workplaces and visits to FE providers. 


Work Experience is extremely important to prepare our young people for their futures. All Year 11 pupils will complete a full week of work experience in the Spring Term and all sixth form pupils attend a weekly work experience placement running throughout the academic year. Feedback about work experience placements from both the pupils and employers has always been extremely positive and we are expanding our network of placement providers every year.


If you feel that you are able to offer a work experience placement to one of our pupils please contact:

Careers education and guidance play a major part in helping young people choose pathways that suit their interests, abilities and individual needs. A strong careers programme helps avoid disengagement, puts school learning into a wider and more relevant context, and helps raise aspirations. Clare Mount Specialist Sports College careers programme aims to help our students plan and manage their careers effectively, ensuring progression which is ambitious and aspirational.
