Careers Reward for Ysgol Friars
A Gwynedd Secondary School has got the grade after receiving the prestigious Careers Wales Mark for the second time.
The accolade, which recognises a commitment to continuous quality improvement within an educational institution, was awarded to Ysgol Friars for its dedication and enthusiasm in preparing and supporting young people entering the world of work or continuing in education.
Working alongside the team at Careers Wales, the school carried out an audit of their careers and world of work curriculum and identified areas for improvement, resulting in the production of a development plan.
The plan will further help the school to prepare and support students for a successful transition into work, training or further education and help reduce the number of young people potentially becoming unemployed.
Speaking of the school’s achievement, Rhian Lloyd Thomas, Area Manager for Careers Wales, said: “This is an excellent achievement and a clear demonstration that young people in Ysgol Friars are receiving the support they need to help them find out about and prepare for the world of work as well as helping them to make realistic informed decisions about their future.”
