Careers

Contact careers@tiffingirls.org to arrange a careers appointment. Ms Kilpatrick is the Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for careers. We are working towards the Gatsby Benchmarks, a framework of eight guidelines that define the best careers provision in secondary schools using the Compass Benchmark Tool. 

 

TiffinTalk

The TiffinTalks are currently suspended due to Covid-19.
TiffinTalk is a series of talks allowing students to hear first-hand from experienced professionals and recent graduates in industry. Each TiffinTalk is designed to stimulate students to think about sectors they may not already be considering, to deepen students' understanding of careers they may be contemplating, and to suggest pathways into their chosen career. 

 

Work Experience

Mrs Broadbent oversees work experience for Year 11 students and can be contacted on workexperience@tiffingirls.org
 

Every summer, students in Year 11 have the opportunity to participate in our work experience scheme after their GCSE examinations. Work experience is very valuable in giving young people a greater understanding of working life and guidance towards future career choices. Students often refer to the experience and skills they have developed through their work placements in their UCAS personal statements.
 

Our scheme operates by encouraging students to arrange their own work experience placements. This in itself gives students valuable experience by taking responsibility for the process. Placements may be arranged through family connections or by students applying directly to companies in which they are interested.

There are work experience platforms offering a variety of placements, including virtual, which have been especially valuable during the restrictions imposed as a result of the coronavirus.
