Sixth Form Careers
All pupils at Belvedere sixth form benefit from a bespoke programme of careers guidance and opportunities which provide a vast range of talks, assemblies, workshops, events and networking opportunities. The aim of this programme is to support and inspire students as they plan their next steps, encouraging them to challenge stereotypes and have high aspirations. We aim to not only develop knowledge about the world of work, but also provide opportunities to develop employability skills and contacts.
As a GDST school we are able to offer bespoke events and activities, including many that are only open to GDST schools. Event have included workshops with PwC in Manchester, investment banking and law events in London, and experiences at Rolls Royce in the Midlands. Closer to home, we also work with GDST experts to share timely careers information and ensure our students are up to date with Labour Market Information, allowing them to make informed choices. GDST regularly run assemblies & workshops, either in person or virtually, and our students can also reach for out for support to alumni from all GDST schools by using the GDST's own Rungway app.
All our students also have access to independent advice and guidance in school, from our fully qualified careers advisor who works one day a week, or online using the Fast Tomato careers platform which all sixth formers are signed up to and encouraged to use.
