At Turves Green Boys’ School we provide a thorough careers programme to support all our students with their future aspirations.

For the 2018-19 academic year we will be working with Newman University as part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) to provide additional specific, tailored mentoring and outreach so that students have a clearer understanding of the choices in front of them and how to achieve these.

How to access careers advice and support

We have a dedicated careers adviser who supports our students and parents in making suitable careers choices. Our careers adviser is Mr D Tehan who can be contacted via the school email address or phone number.

If you wish to discuss or provide feedback or suggestions on any aspect of our careers provision you can contact Mr Westwood our Careers Leader using the school contact details.

Our current programme for the 2018-19 academic year is outlined below and will be further expanded with our NCOP partnership.

How we measure the impact of our careers programme

We keep accurate records of the destinations of all our Yr11 leavers and work to ensure that we have no NEET students.

We also evaluate the activities we provide to inform the impact of the provision and use this to further improve the careers programme at the school.

Our careers programme at TGBS is reviewed on an annual basis and the next review will take place in July 2019.
