Year 11 career contact and admissions information


Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) is an essential part of the support we offer to students at Parkside Community School. Effective careers support can help to prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life; it can help them to make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. As options for young people become more varied and complex, it is vital that we support them to develop the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices for their future. As a result, the careers programme has a whole-school remit designed to complement the rest of the school curriculum. If you have any queries relating to careers, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs K O’Sullivan, Careers Lead.

Baker Clause Policy Statement – Advice to Employers/Educational Institutes

As part of our commitment to informing Parkside Community School students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to our students. Parkside Community School proactively seeks to build on close working relationships with providers in order to invite them to attend school assemblies, employer and provider engagement events or to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting post 16 choices. In the first instance, requests by providers should be sent to the school’s Careers Lead, Mrs K O’Sullivan (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with a minimum of 6 weeks’ notice. All requests will be considered on the basis of: staffing availability to support the activity, clashes with other planned activities, trips or visits to the school, interruption to examination preparation or rooming and space availability to host the activity.
