Careers – Beyond Peak

At Peak School we believe that every pupil can fulfil their potential. To achieve this, we provide a personalised curriculum, designed to address the needs of the whole child or young person. Our Beyond Peak Careers provision is tailored to meet the differing needs and requirements of our students at relevant stages of their journey.

We are fully committed to ensuring that all of our students acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to support learning and preparation for intended destinations. Our Beyond Peak programme is designed and structured to meet the eight Gatsby Benchmarks of good careers guidance.  

At Peak School we are working strategically with a number of key education partners to support sustainable and meaningful links with our local community. We have successfully established links with a range of employers to support work placements and work-related learning opportunities. We have strong links with Further Education colleges, specialist training providers and a wide range disability confident employers.

Our Careers programme aims to raise aspiration and develop our pupils’ self-belief and independence skills. We are committed to developing our student’s cultural capital, promoting British values, challenging stereotypes and removing or mitigating barriers that our pupils may encounter when planning for transition or careers pathways.

Our pupils access independent careers advice provided by a qualified Careers Adviser. Careers guidance supports identification of destination points, next steps and action plans for each pupil.
