Careers education at Ivybridge Community College is lead by Ms Imogen Martin, Assistant Principal: Sixth Form and Careers. Working alongside College Directors, the Sixth Form Team, the Lead for Enrichment, mentors and advisors from outside the College we ensure that all students have access to quality information, opportunities and bespoke advice that is both unbiased and tailored to the individual needs of our young people. Thus ensuring that all young people at Ivybridge Community College are best prepared for their prosperous futures.
The College uses Unifrog online, “a bespoke one-stop-shop where students can explore their interests and then find and successfully apply for their best next step after school”.
Ivybridge Community College works in partnership with CSW Group to provide independent and impartial Careers Advice and Guidance for our students. The College’s main link Careers Development Consultant is Mike Shail.
Mike supports young people at the College to explore their next steps, potential career pathways and in supporting personal ambition and challenge.
A large aspect of CSW’s work with the College is through one-to-one Careers Advice interviews with students in Year 11. CSW Group are also in attendance at events such as Sixth Form Open Evenings and GCSE results days.
Throughout the year CSW Group can also provide assemblies and workshops on Apprenticeships and option choices to different Year Groups through the ASK programme https://youtu.be/CCs7O3ltZvk and The ASK programme (apprenticeships.gov.uk)
If any student requires an appointment they need to speak to their Tutor in the first instance.
