Careers Guidance and Information

At CNS, we are highly committed to providing our students with information, advice and guidance relating to future pathways and careers.  As part of this we are working towards achieving 100% in all 8 Gatsby Benchmarks.

Our intention is to ensure students are in a competitive position to secure careers that are stimulating, rewarding and provide financial wellbeing.  All students have access to independent careers advice and guidance through an externally accredited provider.

Our careers programme is reviewed annually and amended to meet the needs of our students. 

We are keen to engage with businesses and employers to help us inform and educate our students about the world of work and prepare them for the future. Throughout the year we have several events and activities in which employers can engage with students, these include business lunches, drop down days, work experience placements, careers fairs, CV workshops & more. We are also looking to involve more employers and businesses in linking careers to the curriculum.

We welcome past students into our alumni and appreciate their participation and involvement into our school events and activities.  For more information, go to https://www.cns-school.org/AboutUs/CNS-Alumni/

Each year we ask for parents/carer feedback.

If you would like to talk someone in school about the careers programme, please speak to our Careers IAG Lead: Natalie Pentney n.pentney@cns-school.org
