Regent High School offers a work experience placement for all those in Key Stage 4 in order to help prepare them for life beyond school and to aid in their prospective career choices. It provides the opportunity for our students to apply the skills and knowledge they have learnt during school into a work environment. Work experience is a great way of identifying students’ strengths and interests, and can often inspire them into a particular area of study or work.
Connexions is a national support service for all young people aged 13-19. Connexions advisers offer young people support, advice and guidance on a range of issues including education, training, jobs, money, health and housing. At South Camden Community School we have a range of Connexions services available.
In particular, a Connexions Careers specialist provides all Year 11 students with one to one careers interviews and an individual action plan and Year 9 students with the opportunity to be interviewed before they choose their GCSE options.
A full time Connexions Personal Adviser is based in school every day to support students and can provide help with any issue that is affecting students and their education. Connexions advisers are present at all parents’ evenings and school career events.
