We are delighted to announce that Bedford School has been
awarded the prestigious National Career Mark for their outstanding
Bedford School joins just nine other independent schools in
the UK to hold this nationally recognised accreditation; a Careers
Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) award.
The Career Mark was awarded following a rigorous assessment
that included a series of pupil and staff interviews, and written reports.
Speaking on the Career Mark award, Mrs Mel Lincoln, Head of
Careers & UCAS said, “We are delighted to receive this national
award. It is a wonderful validation of the high standard of careers
provision delivered to boys across the school. We recognise that high
quality careers advice and guidance is vital to prepare boys for their futures;
to help them to make the most of the opportunities open to them and,
ultimately, find success and happiness after school.”
However, the award is only the first step; the school will
continue to work with Career Mark over the next two years to ensure a constant
cycle of improvement and development.
