Student entitlement

Students in years 8-13 are entitled:

  • To find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point.
  • To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options evenings, assemblies and group discussions and taster events.
  • To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

A young person's career is their pathway through learning and work.

All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them make 14-19 choices that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers throughout their lives.

Chichester High School is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education for all students in Years 7-13 and information, advice and guidance (CIAEG) in partnership with an independent company U-Explore, who offer all students impartial advice.

We are delighted to be working with Unifrog
