Careers Education and Impartial Advice and Guidance
Tolworth Girls' School and Sixth Form is committed to ensuring our students are given opportunities to best prepare them for their future. In school this is not just based on the curriculum but reaches far wider by supporting each and every student to follow the pathway that is best for them.
Throughout the year there are both internal and external events and activities that students are offered to start planning for the future. Through tutorial programmes, whole school curriculum days, trips and visits, all post 16 and 18 options are explored from year 8 onwards. Students in all year group can meet with the lower school careers advisor, and particularly at key transition times they are supported further in how to make these important decisions, by discovering their key skills and strengths individually.
At Tolworth Girls' School and Sixth Form it is important that our students get to try working in the real world and therefore have developed a ‘Take your daughter to work’ programme in years 8 and 10; and a work experience programme for year 12 students. This gives them the opportunity to do a work placement, but also teaches them the vital life skills in job research, applications, CV writing and presenting themselves to employers in a professional manner.
We are also working towards bringing more professionals in, particularly past TGS students through our Alumni network, to meet with all year groups.
This is in addition to the opportunities students are given in class, in subjects, demonstrating a practical use of subjects in different careers.

Careers education and Independent information, advice and guidance is important to every student and here at Tolworth Girls' School and Sixth Form we believe every student should have access to and receive support in planning their future.
Careers Education and Independent Advice and Guidance Policy
Careers education provides students with opportunities to learn about themselves and the skills they will need when they leave education. Activities and lessons are designed to make students independent and reflective, and to see the impact education can have on careers.
