Careers Education

It is part of the vision of Turner Free School that all pupils receive careers education, information, advice and guidance that will enable them to choose education and employment pathways that are right for them and are able to manage their careers throughout their lives.

The aim of our careers programme is to:

As pupils progress through TFS they will participate in a range of careers related activities, including:

These sessions will be delivered through assemblies, tutor time, PSHE lessons, special events, trips and stand alone careers sessions. If events are unable to take place face to face, where possible, we endeavor to adapt activities to suit a virtual environment.

Pupils can drop in to see Mrs Newsome, our Careers Advisor in the Careers office, with any careers questions during any break or lunchtime, or a 1 to 1 appointment can be made for any pupils requiring a more in-depth discussion.

Careers Education is everyone’s responsibility!

Your role as partners in careers:

Teachers and School Staff – To provide pupils with opportunities to discover and learn about careers and employability, engage with the wider business community and with employers inside and outside of the classroom. To link learning with the world of work and discuss experiences, skills development and progression with pupils.

Pupils – To engage with careers events and learning opportunities, ask questions, research and discover all they can about future possibilities. Evaluate and record events.

Parents/Carers – To be aware of the careers events and engage in the events and discussion about careers, progression and opportunities. To use careers resources and websites to help support at home.

Employers and the wider community – We would love to hear from you if you could support the school either by helping with a careers event at the school, at your place of work or by offering work experience. Please contact Miss Fagg,, if you might be able to help with this.
