South Devon UTC is a designated “Careers Hub”. This indicates our goal of delivering world class education and demonstrates we are taking a strategic and operational approach to careers. We are committed to continuous improvement in careers education and routinely engage with employers using their insight to enrich the curriculum & inspire and inform students with direct experiences and encounters with industry.
As a careers hub, we have gained external validation and benchmarking of our careers strategy and programme against other schools locally and nationally giving a rigorous measurement of success.
We continue to support young people to make the best possible life & career choices and by working with the Careers Hub give our students access to greater opportunities and the most up to date information.
Independent Careers Advice
Our independent careers advice and guidance takes many forms including:
• planned interaction with employers throughout the school year
• independent student-led research
• personal one-to-one “aspiration” interviews with their tutors
• engagement with the Employer Engagement Officer
Parental involvement is a key feature of the role and you may consider this range of web-tools useful in facilitating your discussions.
