The careers provision at Bankside College takes a holistic, person-centred approach.
All learners have access to interactions with a named impartial careers advisor working with the Outcomes First Group, specialising in SEND. The sessions provided by this advisor are tailored to the individual needs, meeting each student as many times as needed to establish good rapport and get to the heart of what each young person wants to achieve.
By being an external and impartial member of the Malvern Community, our advisor provides valuable input throughout the student journey, which is documented in their learning plans and EHCPs, and informs their learning pathway with us.
We strive to empower each young person to lead meaningful lives by offering careers and lifestyle support either online or in person, and at an appropriate level for each person at a pace that is challenging but not overwhelming.
Where appropriate, work experience, visits to further and higher education, and interactions with employers and employees will be offered. Using links to the local community and beyond is vital to ensure our students receive the highest level of career support in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks. The college reviews its careers plan on an annual basis.
