Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

At Sale High School we recognise the importance of high quality careers education and guidance in motivating and inspiring young people and helping them to make informed choices about their future pathways and careers. We understand that careers education and guidance is an integral strand of a young person’s education and is crucial in raising aspirations, and helping pupils emerge from school more fully rounded and ready for the world of work. Young people want and need to be well-informed when making subject and career decisions. Careers education and guidance is the responsibility of all stakeholders and should involve staff, students, parents and employers.


The designated careers lead for Sale High School is Mr J Williams, Assistant Head Teacher with responsibility for Progress and Transition (KS4 into KS5) and Head of Year 11.
