Oakham School successfully retains Career Mark award

Oakham School is delighted to successfully retain its Career Mark award, the national Quality in Careers Standard mark of excellence, after taking part in a recent assessment by the Licensed Awarding Body. Oakham was first awarded the Gold mark in 2015, which validates the school’s excellence in providing pupils with outstanding career information, advice and guidance. 

The assessment comprised a meeting with the Head of Careers and Progression and Assistant Head Co-curricular as well as group interviews with students. 

The assessor praised the breadth of careers in which Oakhamians are interested and the very positive way in which they could challenge stereotypes about professions as well as their awareness of the different routes available to them after the completion of their secondary education.

Head of Careers and Progression, Rachael Pearson, said, “We are thrilled to have retained our quality assurance career mark award and it was gratifying to hear the pupils speak so positively about the support they receive.” 

Oakham School is fully committed to providing exceptional careers advice to its pupils throughout their time at Oakham and achieves this by delivering an in-house careers programme. Find out more about the Careers Department at Oakham.
