“Since September, we have delivered several career-related activities, including assemblies and presentations alongside one-to-one guidance. Currently, we are working on the annual careers fair, post-16 employability workshops, and mock group interviews.
“It has been an extremely exciting and busy first term, but I feel that the foundations have been laid for a fantastic year ahead.”
Progress Careers have most definitely made a huge impact in the short time delivering careers services.
Following an appointment with Careers Adviser, Rachel Costoya, a student said: “My experience with the interview and our career advisor was nothing but positive. She was understanding, considered my views, and gave off the overall impression of genuine interest and care towards my aspirations and hopes for the future.
“She considered all my concerns and helped me plan in a way that suited me best, even if I was unsure of certain things and/or completely set on others. My view on college and the future has changed and I feel confident and a lot less intimidated than I originally was. Even after only one session, I feel like I have a much clearer sense of my options, and I am immensely grateful for that.”
Progress Careers also hope to fully integrate its digital careers platform, iProgress, across the school this year. iProgress provides full visibility to schools around the careers activities undertaken with each student which can be used for tracking and reporting, saving schools significant reporting time. In addition, it allows students to connect virtually with their Careers Advisers.
