Careers education in the RIC Lower School 

In our Lower School, Careers education is an integral part of our PHSE programme. The college offers a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance for all students which is appropriate to their age, stage, ability and educational needs.  

We are particularly keen to challenge gender or cultural stereotypes when it comes to presenting particular career paths to students. 

We use the Unifrog platform and the Gatsby Framework within the college to support students to make the best choices about their future. In the Lower School the PSHE programme from Jigsaw contains units that explicitly look at personal economic competence and understanding of the purpose and uses of money.
