We support our students in making well-informed decisions about their future by providing access to a range of impartial information and guidance about the range of further education and training options available to them when they leave APS, both academic and vocational. We offer each student differentiated and independent advice on those options most likely to help them achieve their goals, in line with our vision ‘success for all’.

All students have access to a selection of events and assemblies on the subject of careers advice and subject choices and we invite parents and alumni into the classrooms to hold sessions on careers in specific industries throughout the year. Work Related Learning is also delivered across the curriculum, with a specific focus provided in citizenship lessons on preparing for future education and employment.

We have published a summary of our careers programme provision in our Careers Strategy, which includes information on how we measure and assesses the impact of our programme. This strategy document is available to download below and is reviewed and published annually.

We have also published a policy statement setting out the circumstances in which providers of technical education and apprenticeships are able to provide careers information to our students. This policy statement is published on the policies page of the school website.
