Here at Shuttleworth College, we have an award-winning programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance; having been presented with the East Lancashire Education Awards’ Career Aspiration Award two years running and been among the first schools in England to fully achieve all eight Gatsby Benchmarks! We are also the lead school for the Lancashire Careers Hub.
Shuttleworth Careers Programme
Our programme helps young people to learn to make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. As we develop career awareness and broaden horizons, we are supporting the vision and mission of the school that all learners ‘Think Big, Chase Dreams, Succeed Together’. It is essential that the school contributes in preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experience of adult life, as evidence suggests improved Careers education is linked to higher achievement at GCSE. All students who attend Shuttleworth College will be exposed to the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices and achieve economic wellbeing in later life.
Our award-winning, five-year careers programme meets the eight government-set ‘Gatsby Benchmarks’ in every area. Here’s what that looks like here at Shuttleworth: Policy & Plan. A summarised, parent/carer guide to the Gatsby Benchmarks can be found here. A summary and link information can be found below in each of the relevant sections.
