Queen Elizabeth’s School has a critical role to play in preparing our boys for transitions into the next stage of their careers; whether that is in education, employment or training.
As such, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are crucial and integral aspects of our boys’ learning and entitlement. This page aims to set out our current School strategy with this regard.
Queen Elizabeth’s has a statutory responsibility to ensure that boys are provided with impartial, independent careers guidance from Year 7 to Year 13. In line with this obligation, careers guidance consists of services and programmes intended to raise our boys’ aspirations, broaden their horizons and empower them to make realistic, informed decisions at all key transitional points in their education. The following gives an overview of the types of event boys will take part in as they progress through the School.
Careers work is coordinated by Mr James Kane (Assistant Head, Pupil Destinations) and supported by our enterprise adviser Roopesh Jaiswal, as part of a collaboration with the London Enterprise Adviser Network.
Mr Kane can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (020) 8441 4646.

Further details of career activities and information for parents and students is available on eQE (our intranet).
The impact of the careers programme is monitored through a broad range of evidence. This includes leavers’ destination data, information on which can be found on the School Performance page and via the government’s compare school performance website. Feedback is also gained from pupils through pupil conferences and the bespoke tutorial system, as well as through eQE surveys following events. Parental feedback can be measured through surveys such as that conducted to inform the current School Development Plan, by RSAcademics. Reports are also regularly received from the external providers that the School works with. The involvement of alumni within the delivery of careers advice and guidance also enables the input of those who have experienced the transition from school to higher education and/or the world of work. Information shared through our QE Connect platform for alumni, also demonstrates onward career progression.
