Careers at John Taylor Free School is based on the culture of ‘preparing students for life’, we want to ensure that our young people can make decisions about their future based on good quality advice and regular encounters with employers and education providers.
Our careers policy is based on the needs of our students in the area in which we are located in. Our programme is dynamic, it changes to meet the needs of the students and what the labour market information tells us about skills gaps that exist.

All students have access to the careers events and services we provide at John Taylor Free School. We understand that some students may need additional support and guidance, therefore our team of Learning Support Assistants regularly engage in aspiration related conversations when meeting with their students.
Our Asdan qualification at GCSE is a key part of our provision for those with SEND, we know that preparing these students for life outside of the school is crucial.
In our study support sessions, which are part of the GCSE pathway students look at the careers they are interested in, make plans for qualifications they need and take part in educational visits to encourage them to think about choices at Post 16.
We work alongside Entrust to provide careers advice for those students most in need, this can involve one to one and group sessions.
