The Careers Education Programme
The Careers education programme at WGGS runs from Years 7-11 as part of PACE and in the Sixth Form as part of the FACE programme in General Studies. Careers education is based primarily around three core concepts; self development, career exploration and career management. Please go to the relevant key stage links to find out more details about what is covered in each year.
Careers events will be advertised through Parentmail and the @careersWGGS Twitter feed, please keep an eye out for anything of interest!
Youth Connexions Hertfordshire is a service for young people which aims to provide information; advice; guidance; support, and personal development opportunities for 13-19 year olds. Miss Lucy Davis, a Personal Adviser from Youth Connexions will be visiting WGGS on a regular basis offering individual interviews; group sessions and a weekly drop-in, every Tuesday lunchtime (Room G). Introductions have been made to the whole of Year 11 so that all students are aware of where they can access help and information.
Students can also access a dedicated website to find out more about the services of Youth Connexions Hertfordshire and record feedback on the service at: www.youthconnexions.org They can also see information about issues and opportunities at www.channelmogo.org and find out what is going on in Hertfordshire for them at www.mogolistings.org
Parents will have the opportunity to meet the Youth Connexions’ staff at selected parents’ events in school throughout the year.
