Every young person needs high-quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future.
The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance:
- A stable careers programme
- Learning from career and labour market information
- Addressing the needs of each pupil
- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounters with employers and employees
- Experiences of workplaces
- Encounters with further and higher education
- Personal guidance
Good career guidance is a necessity for delivering technical education reforms and is a vehicle for social justice: those young people without social capital or home support suffer most from poor career guidance.
Which is why Moseley Park is committed to curating and developing an extensive library of resources for our students, all of which you can explore below.
Our named Careers Leader is Andrew Samuels, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

Provider Access Statement
This statement aims to set out our school’s arrangements for managing the access of education and training providers to students for the purpose of giving them information about their offer. It sets out:
- Procedures in relation to requests for access
- The grounds for granting and refusing requests for access
- Details of premises or facilities to be provided to a person who is given access
2. Statutory requirements
Schools are required to ensure that there is an opportunity for a range of education and training providers to access students in years 8 to 13 for the purposes of informing them about approved technical education, qualifications or apprenticeships.
Schools must also have a policy statement that outlines the circumstances in which education and training providers will be given access to these students.
This is outlined in section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
This policy shows how our school complies with these requirements.
3. Student entitlement
All students in years 8 to 13 at Moseley Park are entitled to:
- Find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeship opportunities as part of our careers programme, which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point
- Hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships,
- Understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses
4. Management of provider access requests
A provider wishing to request access should contact Andrew Samuels, Assistant Headteacher and Careers Lead Email: email@example.com
4.2 Opportunities for access
A number of events, integrated into our careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to students and/or their parents/carers
Please refer to the careers programme on the school website for details of these opportunities.
We will endeavour to provide access beyond these times when appropriate.
Please speak to our Careers Lead to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.
These events will run in line with our school’s COVID-19 safety measures and will depend on national restrictions at the time.
4.3 Granting and refusing access
Providers will be granted access when:
- Procedures for engagement have been followed
- The timing of the engagement does not impact negatively on the learning of the students
Providers will be denied access when:
- Procedures for engagement have not been followed
- Access would present a risk to students’ wellbeing or safety
- The demands of the curriculum at that time outweigh the benefits of engagement with providers
Our safeguarding/child protection policy outlines the school’s procedure for checking the identity and suitability of visitors.
Education and training providers will be expected to adhere to this policy.
4.5 Premises and facilities
- Facilities for specific providers will be negotiated prior to engagement
- Facilities will be agreed between the provider and the Careers Lead
- Providers will be able to share information for students to refer to
- All current safety measures must be adhered to
