Brookvale Groby Learning Campus

Introduction
As a campus whose vision statement is based on the principle of ‘Valuing Everyone, Achieving Excellence’ outstanding careers advice is central to our philosophy.  As a school we believe in supporting and challenging every student to achieve their best and to ensure that no student knowingly under achieves. With these principles in mind, our aim is to ensure that every student has the highest quality advice and guidance on their future pathways and how to achieve their ambitions.

Brookvale Groby Learning Campus: Provider Access Policy
This policy statement sets out the campus’ arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the campus for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the campus’ legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997 commonly known as the Baker Clause.

Opportunities for access
Our campus offers a comprehensive Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme. You are able to see an overview of this programme in the Career Calendar section of our website.

The school will make a suitable space available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available ICT and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Advisor and possibly the IT team.

We have a number of events throughout the year which form part of the campus’ careers programme. We offer providers an opportunity to come onto campus to speak to students and/or their parents/carers.

These are just some of our events which take place annually:

  • Enrichment Programme: Guest Speakers – all sectors
  • An activity around National Careers Week
  • Speedy Speaker Assemblies
  • Careers Evening – includes STEM ambassadors, ASK Apprenticeship Service and training companies
  • Apprenticeship Fair
  • Interactive Trip to Glenfield Hospital

If you wish to be included in the programme or have our own event you want to bring to the school, please contact Hayley Dymond.

Students are faced with a difficult decision when leaving school or college. There are so many options available from A Levels, T Levels to apprenticeships, BTECs and university choices – we aim to help young people to make well-informed decisions about their futures.
