Futures Fortnight

Information for External Education and Training Providers (PAL)

Student Entitlement

Bungay High School fully supports the statutory requirement for students to have direct access to other providers of further education training, technical training and apprenticeships.  The school will comply with the new legal requirement to put on at least six encounters with providers of approved technical education qualifications or apprenticeships. This will be done in assemblies during Futures Fortnight in National Apprenticeship Week and National Careers Week, in addition to providers attending careers events at school.

Equality and Diversity

Access to other providers is available and promoted to allow all students to access information about other providers of further education and apprenticeships. We are committed to encouraging all students to make decisions about their future based on impartial information.

Requests for access

Requests for access should be directed to Clinton Gillett, Careers Leader who may be contacted by telephone or email 01986 892140 cgillett@bungayhigh.co.uk

Grounds for granting requests for access.

Access will be given for providers to attend during school assemblies, timetabled Careers or Life lessons, and Careers or Raising Aspirations events that Bungay High School is arranging. Students may also travel to visit another provider as part of the trip to be organised in partnership with EAST.

Details of premises or facilities to be provided to a person who is given access.

Bungay High School will provide an appropriate room or assembly hall to be agreed. All rooms have computers, projectors and screens provided. Computer rooms can also be arranged. The Careers Leader or Careers Adviser will organise this, working closely with the provider to ensure the facilities are appropriate to the audience.  Appropriate safeguarding checks will be carried out.  Providers will be met and supervised by a member of the Careers Team who will facilitate.

Live/Virtual encounters

We will consider live online encounters with providers where requested, and these may be broadcast into classrooms or the school assembly hall. Technology checks in advance will be required to ensure compatibility of systems. 

Parents and Carers

Parental involvement is encouraged, and parents may be invited to attend the events to meet the providers.


The Careers Leader coordinates all provider requests and is responsible to his/her senior management line manager.

How the school measures the impact of the careers programme on pupils

Every term the CIAG team complete the 'Compass' audit tool which gives us great insight into what has gone well and equally what we want to address in more depth.  A student survey is also completed to assess the student voice regarding careers, aspiration and guidance sessions and this informs the following years programme.  We complete a county tracking and benchmarking tool every other year as well as use the Gatsby Benchmarks as a reference to best practice.  Our impact is evaluated at the start of every academic year and the Aspirations Policy is reviewed thoroughly every 3 years.

Destination Data
