Careers at JTHS


A young person’s career reflects the progress they make in learning and work. It is part of the vision and mission of John Taylor High School that all learners need a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 options that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers, sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives.

John Taylor High School is committed to ensure learners have access to a source of careers guidance which is independent and external to the school. We are committed to providing a planned programme of impartial careers education and information, advice and guidance (IAG) for all learners in Years 7-13 and to provide extra support as required for learners with additional needs. Timely evaluations and a range of assessment activities measure the impact of the careers programme on pupils. Results of these are used to continually improve our provision. John Taylor High School endeavours to follow best practice guidance from the careers profession, from other expert bodies such as Ofsted. We are also committed to maintaining our Quality in Careers quality mark.
