Cox Green Careers’ Vision

The Cox Green Careers’ Programme strives to provide students current and relevant market place information, advice and guidance to inspire students to realise their ambitions by making the right informed decisions about their next steps. We provide an environment that is supportive to ensure that our students acquire the life skills and qualifications to become successful, well rounded citizens.

We achieve this by putting our values at the heart of our careers’ provision and provide a bespoke, robust, dynamic and creative programme for every individual. Through utilising current LMI information, Unifrog, a wide range of local, national and international resources and ensuring that careers is explicitly embedded within the whole school curriculum we ensure that students are equipped with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to fulfil their full potential.

Gatsby Benchmarks

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of 8 guidelines that define the best careers provisions in secondary schools. Cox Green School is committed to meeting all of the Gatsby Benchmarks and work in collaboration with the Careers Enterprise Company, TVLEP, external providers and our Enterprise Advisor from 3.

Cox Green is very fortunate to have a full time Careers Advisor. Every student in the school, each year, is invited to a careers and guidance meeting.

Mrs Thompson is our full time Careers Advisor, Michelle Burke is the careers leader. The careers office is located in main school and has an open door policy. Students are free to make an appointment or drop in during break times, or after school with general queries. An extensive collection of university and college prospectuses are available for students. Mrs Thompson attends school events and parent evenings. Should parents wish to speak with her, appointments can also be made after school. Mrs Thompson can support with university applications, personal statements, apprenticeships, writing CV’s and interview skills. "Careers Insight" and “You’re Hired" events have proved extremely popular, providing students with a valuable understanding of the world of work.
