At Fulham Cross Girls’ School we are committed to delivering high quality, effective Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) by ensuring students make informed decisions about their future through greater self-awareness, problem solving and active decision making.
We appreciate it can be daunting when students take their next step into Sixth Form, College or start an Apprenticeship and so to help with this we have a dedicated careers education and guidance programme that starts in year 7 and continues right the way through until the end of Year 11. CEIAG is delivered through the PSHEE curriculum. We also have a specialist careers adviser in school from EBSI (www.ebsiuk.com) on Tuesdays and Thursdays to support the girls with their choices after GCSEs.
In the Autumn Term of Year 10 we offer a hugely successful two week work experience programme so that all girls get a taste of working life beyond the classroom in preparation for their future careers/education.
On Tuesdays we also host a very popular "Empower Breakfast" in our Careers Hub where guest speakers who are experts in a wide variety of fields, give talks about their professions and students are given the opportunity to ask questions. We have had many inspirational visitors from doctors to fashion designers who have given advice and guidance to students so that they can aspire to be the best they can be both at school and beyond. Many of our speakers are Fulham Cross alumni who have become outstanding role models and really highlight the amazing opportunities that are available to the girls when they leave.
In addition to this, we offer a range of opportunities for providers of courses and apprenticeships to come to speak to our students so that they are fully informed about their options. Our Policy Statement on Provider Access can be found here:
