CareerWave Partnership


“I wasn’t thinking in terms of “breadth” when it comes to a career path I would like to follow. My sessions opened up a broader spectrum to what was accessible”

“I learnt to consider the wider availability of jobs that my subject choices can provide”

“Undertaking the CareerWave programme made me think I need to be prepared and how unprepared I was before I met them”

  • Have a 1 hour 121 personal guidance interview – this is usually with year 10 – year 13 students and can be done remotely online using a platform such as teams or zoom
  • Receive an action plan detailing what has been discussed – where are they now, where do they want to be (options) and what action do they need to take to get there
  • Register on our new learning zone for the career programme – they don’t have to use Grofar for this. This is a tutorial-based programme from year 7-13. Designed to be delivered by tutors (non-career specialists) over 30 min sessions x 9 throughout the year. Learners can also log into the learning zone and look at the programme in their own time.
  • NB – the 121 guidance can be done with or without the careers programme. Generally, we wouldn’t deliver the careers programme – that would be done by a tutor in school.
  • A typical learner (who is doing a guidance qualification with us) would register with us and an Awarding Body (OCR) for their qualification do a series of workshops with us (available face to face or remotely)
  • Have 121 tutorials with us (face to face or remotely)
  • Complete assignments
  • Be observed by us (we are doing this over teams too at the moment)
  • Gain a guidance qualification with us
  • Employability training programme for year 12-13, focus on work experience
