A Careers Wales award which recognises continuous improvement within Careers and the World of Work for students aged 11-19 has been presented to a range of learning providers in Cardiff.

During the year, seven secondary schools, two special schools, a sixth form college and a work based learning provider have each received the Careers Wales Mark.

Secondary schools receiving the award include Cardiff High School, Cathays High School, Corpus Christi High School, Llanishen High School, Rumney High School, St Teilo’s Church in Wales High School and Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf.

Saint David’s Catholic Sixth Form College, Greenhill School, Ty Gwyn School and the Rathbone centre in Cardiff were also awarded the Careers Wales Mark with Coleg Glan Hafren, now part of Cardiff and Vale College and Woodlands High School, achieving the award the previous academic year.

Anne Jones, Curriculum Development Adviser at Careers Wales: “Careers and the World of Work is an important part of the curriculum and we are very pleased to work in partnership with schools, colleges and work based learning providers to support the work being done to increase young people’s understanding of the world of work and help them make realistic informed decisions about their futures.

“Learning providers who are awarded the Mark are re-assessed after three years and we are also supporting other schools and work based learning providers who are currently working towards achieving the award.”
