Careers Education

During their time at Arden, students can be assured of receiving a wide range of experiences, support and guidance to help them make decisions about their future.  This starts in Year 7, and supports students through to leaving us in Year 11 or Year 13 after their Sixth Form years.

Arden works in partnership with many other Solihull schools as part of the Life Ready Programme (Solihull) which provides a framework designed to develop independent, life ready young adults.  The programme is based on evidence from the Gatsby Foundation, Career Development Institute, the DfE Careers Strategy and the Confederation of British Industry.  The shared vision of the Life Ready Solihull Programme is that ‘students leaving Arden will have the skills, knowledge and dynamism to reach their full career potential, to meet the needs of employers and to contribute to the economic growth of the borough and GPS LEP’.

The careers leader for Arden is Mrs Amy Fallis: or 01564 773348.
