The Careers Team

Meet our Careers Team!

As part of our Centre for Professional Development we have a dedicated team with Level 6 qualified staff. The team provide group and 1-1 careers appointments, impartial careers guidance and support, work experience opportunities, onsite careers activities and access to our lunchtime programme of drop-in support sessions covering CV and covering letter, creating your own personal branding using LinkedIn, UCAS support, interview tips and advice plus our weekly information packed careers newsletter.   


In 2017 the government published its Careers Strategy, and in 2018 guidance for Further Education Colleges and Sixth Form Colleges which set out the plan for building a high-quality careers system that will help young people have the best start to their working lives. There is now a clear blueprint of what a good careers provision looks like; the eight Gatsby Benchmarks, which are based on national and international research and help to define the elements of an excellent careers programme. The Gatsby Benchmarks have now been put at the heart of the Careers Strategy, with an expectation that all colleges will work towards the benchmarks. Franklin Sixth Form College are committed to achieving all 8 benchmarks and these are embedded within our careers programme. 

Our careers programme offers a structured timetable of events and activities, designed to give every student the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our Ofsted inspection in 2018 highlighted that students participate in a wide range of interesting and worthwhile enrichment activities that give them the opportunity to broaden their education and help them to develop good social, personal and employability skills. Students on 16 to 19 study programmes receive a broad range of good support and guidance to prepare them for progression to higher education or to alternative routes of further study, apprenticeships or employment.
