St. Clare’s is committed to providing Outstanding Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance through a coherent programme of activities that inform, inspire and motivate our students whilst preparing them both to make the transition at the end of their programme and to manage their future career decisions and transitions.
Our Careers programme is mapped against both the Gatsby Benchmarks and the more detailed Framework for Careers, employability and enterprise education from the Careers Development Institute. As an IB School, we also embed the IB approaches to teaching and learning within taught sessions for IB students. In doing so we meet Gatsby Benchmark 1: A Stable Careers Programme
