Careers Education

At Abraham Moss Community School we are committed to fulfilling our statutory duties in providing pupils access to careers information from as early as Primary. Careers advice and guidance is available from Year 7 onwards and is presented in an impartial manner, providing information on the range of educational or training options, including apprenticeships and other vocational pathways. The guidance presented will promote the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given (statutory guidance: careers guidance and access for education and training providers DfE, 2018).

We continue to welcome providers from the local area into Abraham Moss Community School, to give pupils a full picture of the opportunities available to them (2018 Access to providers). Pupils are shown all pathways (A Levels, Vocational, T Levels and Apprenticeships).

We report destination information for our school leavers to Manchester City Council and liaise with them to support any pupils who may not go into post 16 education or training (NEETs).
