At Wyke College we strive to ensure that our students are making aspirational, informed choices based on comprehensive cross college information, advice and guidance. Together with teachers and tutors, our dedicated Careers Team work closely with students to ensure that throughout their study programme they have the opportunity to develop and grow and are equipped with the right skills and competencies. These skills will enable them to make the right decision about their next steps and progress onto some fantastic destinations.
We engage with the students early and work in close partnership with many other stakeholders including employers, universities, parents/carers and the wider community throughout their programme of study. Our Careers Programme gives a detailed description of what we do and at what point we do it, ensuring that students achieve those key employability skills via a full programme of study and enrichment with the thread of careers advice and guidance running through the full programme.
Our Careers programme gives detailed overview for all students, parents, employers and other stakeholders of what is offered and when. The College works to a clear timeline throughout the two years of study for students and this is embedded across both tutorial and curriculum. At key points in the year it is reviewed and amended.
