The Careers programme at Southview School incorporates information, services and providers which are relevant to the specific physical, cognitive and communication needs of our students. With such a range of needs and abilities at Southview this guidance is very varied and relates to Day Centres, further education providers, residential schools and Colleges, work experience and supported employment.
Paul Cornwell is the schools ‘Preparing for Adulthood advisor’. He attends key meetings at transition points throughout a student’s journey at school and provides families with information and support around the local offer and how to access educational providers, Day Centre provision and supported employment opportunities.
The school organises an annual Transitions event where local Post-16 Further Education providers, our own Southview College, local employers and volunteering and support agencies have the opportunity to meet, discuss, make contact and share their offer to students and families.
We also keep in contact with our school leavers and keep a record of past pupils their achievements, employment and pathways.
