Careers Strategy and a Careers Policy
Since 2020 all schools and colleges have been required to provide an excellent careers education for all students. At Derwen College, we have a Careers Strategy and a Careers Policy in place to ensure we are achieving this.
We want all our students to have access to an excellent careers education. We do this by using the Gatsby benchmarks and the Matrix Standards review.

Careers education programme
We have a team of staff dedicated to making sure that we provide an excellent careers education programme. This will start with our admissions team, who will help you to choose the most appropriate pathway/programme to support your aspirations for the future.
Once you are at Derwen College, the team will support you throughout your time here, making sure you are ready for transition from Derwen College.
We are proud of the journeys our students make once they leave Derwen College, many of our students will move towards paid or voluntary work, supported living and will be active citizens within their community.
