Baker Clause Policy Statement 

As part of our commitment to informing our students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to students. 

Savio Salesian College also proactively seeks to build relationships with these partners as we plan our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme activity throughout the school year to ensure that providers have multiple opportunities to speak to students and their parents across years 7-11. The purpose of these relationships are to offer information on vocational, technical and apprenticeship qualifications and pathways.

All requests should be emailed at least 6 weeks prior to an expected planned session date. In the first instance, requests by providers should be sent to and should include: 

  • The proposed format, timings and duration of the planned session. 
  • The number of staff from the provider’s organisation who propose to visit. 
  • Any support requirements needed from the school.

All requests will be given consideration from the designated Careers Leader and Senior Leadership team. Requests will be considered against:

  • Clashes with other planned activities or visits. 
  • Interruption to preparation for public or internal examinations. 
  • Availability of school staff, space and resources to host the session. 

Opportunities for providers to speak with students may include school assemblies, employer and provider engagement events or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting GCSE, post 16 choices. Savio Salesian College’s CEIAG programme is monitored for quality and impact by the Senior Leadership Team and the Governing Body ensuring access and opportunities to engage with, technical, vocational and training providers will form part of this process.

For questions on this or our wider CEIAG programme, please contact the Director of Careers, Mrs C. Murphy-Worrell at

Savio Salesian College Careers Leader - Mrs C Murphy-Worrell




Outline of Careers provision at Savio Salesian College.


The college delivers the Careers Education programme through a structured integrated PSHCE curriculum. In addition to this the students are provided with numerous opportunities to engage with different employers through different events such as the Annual Careers Fair, visits to different employers e.g Peel Port , Business Mentor programme, speed mentoring with different employers and much more. There is a structured Work Experience programme that all then links with mock interviews, apprenticeship workshops and preparation for the ‘Next Step’ .All students complete a ‘Careers Investigator’ questionnaire which provides independent guidance and advice about different careers. In addition every student receives 1:1 independent careers advice and support for their future decisions from an external provider. Every student will be invited to visit local FE and Universities as well as attending assemblies delivered by external Education establishments. We pride ourselves on Careers now being recognised as a strength of the school and will continue building, refining and developing our programme.




Measuring the Impact


The school regularly utilises the Careers & Enterprise Company audit tool ‘Compass ‘to measure the current the provision against the Gatsby benchmarks.
