At Fulham College Boys’ School we are committed to delivering high quality, effective Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) by ensuring students make informed decisions about their future through greater self-awareness, problem solving and active decision making.
We appreciate it can be daunting when students take their next step into Sixth Form, College or start an Apprenticeship and so to help with this we have a dedicated careers education and guidance programme that starts in Year 7 and continues right the way through until the end of Year 11. CEIAG is delivered through the PSHEE curriculum. We also have a specialist careers adviser in school from EBSI (www.ebsiuk.com) on Thursdays to support the boys with their choices after GCSEs.
Year 10 students studying Construction and Business will get a taste of working life for a week in March 2018. Work experience provides students with the opportunity to see the world of work at first hand, to acquire and develop key skills, to sample a wide range of tasks as possible under the supervision of experienced workers and to make a small contribution to the work of a team. The work experience programme is very successful and gives the students a taste of working life beyond the classroom in preparation for their future careers/studies. Students in Year 10 can also apply for other work experiences such as London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham ‘Take Over Day’ where students apply for positions at the town hall. This year Youth Take Over Day was on Friday 24th November 2017.
Students can drop in to see Ms Biety, our Careers Co-ordinator in the Careers Department on Mondays, and Fridays.
In addition to this, we offer a range of opportunities for providers of courses and apprenticeships to come to speak to our students so that they are fully informed about their options. Our Policy Statement on Provider Access can be found here:
