Llanwern High School Achieves the Careers Wales Mark
September 16th, 2019 by Rhian Dobson
Dear Mrs Jarvis
On behalf of Careers Wales, I would like to offer my congratulations to you and your colleagues on achieving the Careers Wales Mark.
Having processes in place that enable staff to continually review and improve provision relating to the requirements of the Careers and the Work of Work framework, results in an enriched learning experience for your learners.
I’m sure you would agree that in this difficult economic climate it is more important than ever to provide engaging and informative career and work related education programmes for all learners, equipping them with career management skills and preparing them to enter the world of work. As well as the long-term benefits to learners’ future lives, there is evidence that good career guidance also bring benefits in the shorter term, while learners are still at school. These benefits include better motivation once learners have clear goals for future study and careers, leading to higher self-esteem, higher attainment and reduced drop-out rates.
Once again congratulations on achieving the award. We look forward to supporting you with further development work in the future.
Chief Executive Careers Wales
