Careers Advice & Guidance

An exciting new approach to careers advice and guidance is underway at The Swanage School. The ‘employment through the curriculum’ initiative aims to deliver a range of employment related information alongside regular studies and to be accessible for all years and abilities.


Crew time (formerly tutor time) offers a dedicated opportunity to:

· Investigate career pathways – including Post-16 options and employment sectors/subject areas

· The opportunity to book and engage with (virtual) work experiences in employment sectors such as health care, construction, aerospace engineering etc.

· Undertake a range of employer-led, skills and competencies training packages (leading to real qualifications) such as first aid at work, food hygiene, team communication, project management etc.

· An option to participate in an ‘Extended Project Qualification’ that investigates an employment-led area of interest and leads to an additional GCSE or perhaps even an A/AS level qualification

The Careers Lead at the Swanage School is Alex Duke who can be contacted via the school office or by email.
