Prestigious quality in careers standard awarded for fourth year
Richmond School and Sixth Form College has been re-accredited for the national Quality in Careers Standard. This is in recognition of our excellent careers education, information, advice, and guidance provision incorporating Gatsby Benchmarks.
This is awarded by Inspiring IAG which is a licensed Awarding Body for the national standard. It is a well-earned achievement that recognises the hard work, not just of the careers team, led by Ms Mannion but also of the wider staff.
Richard Crane, CEO of the Areté Learning Trust, said: This is fantastic news and is testament to the hard work of students and staff and the superb leadership of Liz Mannion of this area. Top-quality careers, information, advice and guidance is so important in terms of supporting students to make their next steps in education or employment, and this award and the recognition around it is well deserved.’
We did particularly well in the area of “Careers in the Curriculum” which means that our lessons link academic subjects to careers on a regular basis. This supports and inspires students to learn about careers that they may not have otherwise considered. Thank you to everyone who has worked hard to help achieve the standard for the fourth year.
Ms Mannion, Careers Leader, added: “A special thank you to Miss Hamer and Mr Soroczan from the Careers team who offer advice and guidance to so many of our students and it is great to be working with such a talented team of professionals.”
