Welcome to our careers page. My name is Mr Salmon and I am the Careers leader at St Clere's school. It is my role to work collaboratively with students and parents in navigating the exciting journey of careers. My role is to empower our students to make informed decisions about their futures and equip them with the skills necessary for success in the ever evolving world beyond the classroom.

Our Careers vision is based around the word Kaizen, a Japanese business term with the ethos of continuous improvement. Our ethos encourages students to advance their knowledge, raise aspirations, inspire innovation, encourage enterprise and allow our students to build suitable networks in their journey to reaching their zenith. We firmly believe that students experiencing our careers programme from Year 7 will be in a fantastic position to decide on their next steps. 

Over the years our students will:

  • Gain a greater knowledge of the range of opportunities open to them.
  • Take part in work related activities in and out of school.
  • Understand unbiased information on current labour market information and trends and expectations of employers.
  • Learn to make decisions wisely about their future.
  • Be fully prepared to manage change and be fully supported through key transition periods.
  • Learn how to improve their own employability: how to find work, how to get work and how to progress their careers.

The Careers Vision..

'Empowering students to reach the zenith of their potential. Guiding careers with excellence and aspiration, one step at a time.'
