From the 31 March 2012 all Government funding for Work Experience was withdrawn with no alternative provision as a replacement for Connexions. The expectation is that individual schools will provide a service based on the needs of their students and will fund this service from their other budgets.

Of course, at Tanbridge House we fully appreciate the need for a comprehensive careers programme. Our aim will therefore always be to provide the highest level of advice and experience for our students regardless of the level of central government support.

Our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) document (see below) demonstrates how we plan to ensure that all students (Years 7 to 11 inclusive) have access to comprehensive and independent careers advice.  Our aim is that all students will be confident in their future options and will leave Tanbridge House with a clear and realistic career plan.

If you have any questions regarding these changes, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Coomber on 01403 755991 or via email:

We would also like to draw your attention to the TAKE OFF Website, designed by young people for young people.  It has a lot of valuable information about local job vacancies; apprenticeships; CV writing; interview skills and more.

A copy of our Provider Access Policy is available on our School Policies web page
