Parents and carers
Our purpose is to help our students find theirs. To assist students we have created a full school careers plan (which can be found on the careers policy page) with a list of the outcomes we wish to achieve. That way you can track your child’s journey through school. We understand how important careers decisions are. Therefore this page is designed to assist you with that process – by providing you with a range of resources that can help you.
For more information or to arrange a meeting, please call 0151 330 5151 or contact Antony Stagg at email@example.com
Careers Advice is not just for Young People, Parents/Carers also need support to help young people make tough and challenging decisions. Careers advice for parents is a website that has been set up by careers professionals and recommended by the UK Career Development Institute. ‘Careers Advice for Parents aims to give you an easy-to-read overview of all the essential facts on finding jobs and apprenticeships or choosing further and higher education courses which could make a real difference to your child’s future career prospects.’
For all students Y7-13, we use a careers platform called Unifrog to help them research options post Archbishop Blanch School. The platform is used to help students document their CEIAG progress and interactions. Staff can track interactions and use this tool to plan for meaningful and appropriate opportunities to support progress as parents and carers, there are many tools on here that you may wish to use with your child to help them make decisions and promote some discussion at home. Unifrog is used in aspects of the weekly one hour CEIAG sessions and it is encouraged by staff to be utilised outside of the classroom with students from all year groups.
Unifrog is updated regularly, the apprenticeship shortlisting tool is updated every 24 hours with apprenticeships from across the country, this really is a vital part in securing our pupils strong and meaningful destinations.
If you would like a parental log in please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get one set up.
Your children have had some amazing ‘Meet the Professional’ sessions this academic year from all over the wider Liverpool city region, these sessions really are invaluable in helping pupils see what a profession/job role looks like and understand the pathways to get there. If you could assist with these sessions and have an hour on a Wednesday morning 8.45am – 9.45am please contact email@example.com, we really value your support.
