All teaching staff at Cove School are committed to embedding careers information into the curriculum. In addition to this all staff are involved in career related PSHE days and organise their own internal and external employer led activities. Year group tutors deliver a programme of activities on a range of topics, including careers, during tutor time  and control the feedback forms completed after all career related activities.
