BTG Sixth Form and Careers
Bishop Thomas Grant Sixth Form prides itself on ensuring that all students reach their potential and leave school with the knowledge and expertise to thrive in their chosen field.
Our dedicated careers programme follows the government Gatsy Benchmarks to ensure that students have the opportunities and knowledge to succeed in all careers. This year we have our pastoral programme running every Wednesday week 2. These are dedicated to students’ career aspirations as well as their social and mental health.
Outside speakers that we have previously had come to speak to the students are the founder of Career Ear, Civil Service, National Apprenticeship Service, Year Here, Barclays Bank, University of Northumbria and Project Trust. We are always looking to engage more outside providers and different providers to help broaden the students understanding of different career pathways. We also have a dedicated Careers Manager, Mr McCarthy, who organises the careers programme for the school and works one on one with many students who need advice or guidance on careers.
As part of our pastoral programme, we also strive to develop the students understanding of their own mental health and key issues arising in today’s society. Talks have been provided by, amongst others, the Kenward Trust, Teenage Cancer Trust, the Metropolitan Police and Coppafeel.
