Corby Technical School: Baker Clause Statement

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Corby Technical School use the Gatsby 8 benchmarks to inform the provision of Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) delivered. As part of our commitment to informing students of the full range of learning and training routes available, we consider requests from training providers, vocational education routes and apprenticeship providers to speak to students and we will also approach these partners ourselves when planning and organizing key CEIAG events throughout the school year.
