Commitment to Quality in Careers Standard
We are pleased to let you know Christ the King Sixth Forms has decided to commit to achieving The Quality in Careers Standard. We are delighted to confirm the support of the Governors as well as the Senior Leadership Team in achieving this aim. At the last meeting of the governing body meeting, we discussed our application for accreditation and the Committee unreservedly approved and supported the application. We would like to gain this accreditation by February 2024. This award will cover each of the three CTK sites, Aquinas, Emmanuel and St Mary’s.
Our senior leader with overall responsibility for CEIAG in school/college is Holly Power and our nominated leader who is the contact for this award is Tumay Gunduz. Progress will be reviewed at leadership meetings and periodic reports made to the governing body.
Christ the King Sixth Forms strongly value the contribution of a high quality careers and progression programme and the impact that can have on student’s motivation and drive.

“I would recommend coming to CTK as the level of support offered by the subject teachers is exceptionally good. The best thing about CTK is being part of the friendliest group of students I've ever met. I'm applying to Oxford to study Psychology. ”

“My form tutor at CTK was exceptionally supportive every day. I value the freedom and independence of controlling my own learning, staying motivated whilst also having fun. The and people and sense of community provide a great environment. I have enjoyed extra opportunities such as joining summer schools and widening participation programs and becoming a student governor. I received lots of help from the careers guidance counsellor to help me realise what I want to do after sixth form. ”
