Students at Codsall Community High School have opportunities to be involved in an extensive, nationally accredited awards programme.
In 2017, the school was awarded The Quality in Careers Standard national quality award for its careers education, advice, promotion and delivery of work related learning, one of the few schools in Staffordshire with this prestigious award.
Our careers service informs and advises, providing guidance and inspiration for students’ next steps in education, training, work placements and apprenticeship opportunities.
Students in Years 10 and 12 benefit from our work experience programme in the Summer Term which allows them to build useful skills that cannot be taught in the classroom environment as well as helping to guide them in choosing the right sector to work in.
There are many careers advice opportunities available to students throughout the school year – from a host of college and university presentations and visits to the Skills Show, RAF STEM Roadshow and JLR site visits to our annual employability skills day and careers fayre attended by exhibitors such as JLR, UTC Aerospace, The Royal Navy, Staffs Police, The Royal Air Force and local colleges and universities; providing students with a wide range of advice on further education and vocations available to them.
We are also part of the Speaker for Schools programme which provides our students with the opportunity to meet with leading, influential figures from all industries and backgrounds, who share their experiences, inspiration and insights.
