We’re delighted to announce we’ve received the prestigious Careers Wales Mark for the second time.
The accolade, which recognises a commitment to continuous quality improvement within an educational institution, was awarded to Ysgol Aberconwy for our dedication and enthusiasm in preparing and supporting young people entering the world of work or continuing in education.
Working alongside the team at Careers Wales, we carried out an audit of careers and world of work curriculum and identified areas for improvement, resulting in the production of a development plan.
The plan will further help us to prepare and support students for a successful transition into work, training or further education and help reduce the number of young people potentially becoming unemployed.
Lesley Sewell, Assistant Headteacher said: “Ysgol Aberconwy are delighted to have been awarded the Careers Wales Mark again, in recognition of our commitment supporting every single pupil and equipping them with the skills and knowledge to allow them a seamless transition into post-16 education, employment or training. We are very grateful to Careers Wales for their support throughout the process of re-accreditation, as well as the invaluable work done on a one to one and group basis throughout the year. We as a school look forward to working in partnership with Careers Wales in the future”
Speaking of the school’s achievement, Rhian Lloyd Thomas, Area Manager for Careers Wales, said: “This is an excellent achievement and a clear demonstration that young people in Ysgol Aberconwy are receiving the support they need to help them find out about and prepare for the world of work as well as helping them to make realistic informed decisions about their future.”
