Welcome to the Careers Page at Oakwood School.  

The aim of this page is to keep you informed of the Work-Related curriculum and associated activities, as well as providing Information, Advice & Guidance. As presented below, through the Oakwood School Career’s Programme, each student from year 7 to year 11 will experience a range of events, assemblies and presentations, to ensure that they create the best decisions for their future. 


This will be achieved through: 

  • Self-development (helping students to understand themselves and develop their capabilities) 

  • Career exploration (helping students to investigate careers and opportunities)  

  • Career management (helping students implement their plans) 

At Oakwood School, we provide a programme for all our students enabling them to have access to full and informative career progression which is supported by an Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) Advisor.  

Provider Access Legislation: 

The updated provider access legislation (PAL) has now been enacted.It specifies schools must provide at least four encounters with approved providers of apprenticeships and technical education for all their students:

  • Two encounters for pupils during the ‘first key phase’ (year 8 or 9) that are mandatory for all pupils to attend

  • Two encounters for pupils during the ‘second key phase’ (year 10 or 11) that are mandatory for all pupils to attend
