“Preparing students for futures beyond Claremont”
Aim: To support and guide our students to make informed decisions about their futures. Every student will be prepared to go on to further or higher education, vocational training or skilled employment.
Our Careers leader is Mr David Rudd who can be contacted via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please telephone the school on 0208 204 4276 to arrange a time to speak with him.
If you are a Further Education College, Training Provider, Apprenticeship Provider or University who would like to discuss non-academic routes available to students, please read our Provider Access Policy here.
Careers Education and Guidance at Claremont is currently in a phase of redevelopment, particularly in the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic. We are currently reviewing and making changes to our careers guidance programme, to ensure our students are provided with the best support to enable them to make the transition to top: universities, colleges, apprenticeships or other pathways and to secure excellent professional careers. Many of our activities and resources are switching over to the website Unifrog, so that we have a centralized resource which allows us to monitor and track how students are engaging with careers-based work.
A brief summary of the provision we offer can be accessed here.
Introducing Tony Ingham from 'Propsects'; our fully qualified and experienced careers advisor.
How to ask for a careers interview?
We give all students a one-to-one careers interview with a fully trained careers advisor from our partners at 'Prospects'. By the end of year 11 all students will have an interview, and then a second one by the end of year 13. However, if you feel that you would like more advice, and could benefit from even a shorter more focussed session, please aporach one fo the following people:
1. Mr Rudd - Head of Careers
2. Mr Ingham - Careers advisor from our partners 'Prospects'
3. Your own Pupl Progress Manager

The Claremont Careers programme will be reviewed in July of every academic year and revisions will be made where required. The revised programme will be available on the school website in early September for all stakeholders to view.
If teachers, parents, students, employers or providers want further information or would like to contribute to the programme they can get in touch directly with the school’s careers leader using the contact details listed.
Monitoring & Evaluation
The impact of the schools careers programme and events are evaluated using impact questionnaires. These questionnaires are then used to inform the careers programme. If an event or activity receives poor feedback, efforts will be made to improve it or it will be removed from the programme.
Written feedback is also gathered from select groups of students, teachers, parents and employers to get more in depth feedback about our careers programme. This feedback is used to inform our careers programme to ensure it is providing the best outcomes for our students. Destination data is used to inform the careers programme.
If you feel that you would like a starting point for your own research, please refer to the following Career related links and opportunities - we hope they are useful!
