Partners supporting careers education at The Chiltern school

The Chiltern school works under the guidance of local partnerships; the Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC), SEMLEP and the Luton Careers HUB and takes guidance from the Careers Development Institute (CDI).  The school also works with registered Careers Matrix provider Talentino!

The Careers lead has regular meetings with the schools CEC Enterprise advisor, Youth support services advisor and Hub lead at the Luton Careers Hub and attends the CEIAG professional group for Central Bedfordshire.  This ensures that the school provides good careers guidance as well as benefits from the sharing of good practices and continuous professional development.

Other educational partners who support the delivery of the Careers programme at school through the enrichment of specialist and focused workshops such as soft skill workshops, CV writing, mock interviews and understanding of different pathways such as traineeships, internships and apprenticeships.

I can sense the energy of the teaching staff. It feels like the kind of school where my child will thrive rather than stagnate/plod along.
