Wednesday, 15 March, 2017 | Filed in: Awards
Ysgol Bryn Elian has got the grade after receiving the prestigious Careers Wales Mark for the second time. The accolade, which recognises a commitment to continuous quality improvement within an educational institution, was awarded to Ysgol Bryn Elian for its dedication and enthusiasm in preparing and supporting young people entering the world of work or continuing in education.Working alongside the team at Careers Wales, the school carried out an audit of their careers and world of work curriculum and identified areas for improvement, resulting in the production of a development plan. The plan will further help the school to prepare and support students for a successful transition into work, training or further education and help reduce the number of young people potentially becoming unemployed. Mair Herbert Acting Head Teacher said: “We are delighted to have been awarded The Careers Mark, as we are committed to doing everything possible to ensure that each of our students is enabled to pursue a fulfilling and fitting career in a profession, or indeed professions, of their choice. We are very grateful to Careers Wales for assisting us with this.” Speaking of the school’s achievement, Gwenda Roberts, Team Manager for Careers Wales, said: “This is an excellent achievement and a clear demonstration that young people in Ysgol Bryn Elian are receiving the support they need to help them find out about and prepare for the world of work as well as helping them to make realistic informed decisions about their future.”For further information on the Careers Wales Mark visit www.careerswales.com or call 029 2084 6220 to speak with your regional Careers and World of Work Co-ordinator.
