Careers Programme

Our Careers Programme

Our Careers programme starts in Year 7 and supports students to realise their ambitions, achieve their full potential and provides them with the opportunity to explore different career prospects, ensuring that they have the knowledge to make informed choices about their future.

Developed in line with Gatsby Benchmarks the programme, run by experienced TGS Staff, combines sessions with a varied programme of guest speakers,  external Careers Specialists (CXK), inspiring input from our alumni, regular careers sessions, access to specialist careers software such as Unifrog, an annual Careers Fair (this year running virtually - see our Inspiring Careers Programme) and destination-specific support for those considering specific careers or destinations eg Oxbridge or Medicine or Law.

Tonbridge Grammar School measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils using The Gatsby Benchmarks.

As part of the statutory duty upon schools to secure independent careers guidance for students, Tonbridge Grammar School purchases independent impartial careers guidance from CXK - a Matrix standard organisation.

CXK Careers Guidance Advisers are professionally qualified to support and encourage students while they are making decisions about their future. During the confidential and impartial interview students can discuss possible options for further and higher education and explore different career ideas and opportunities.

The school teaches so much about opportunities that are open to the students both whilst at school and when the students move on to university and beyond.
