Working in partnership with our schools


Part of our role here at Taunton Deane Partnership College (TDPC) is to prepare and guide students onto their next step, whether it is back to their school, onto another school, into college or onto work.


Our Careers, Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) programme, supports students into the world of Further Education or Work.  We want all of our students to be able to:

  • Have a good awareness of all the opportunities available to them post 16, and be supported to understand how these can be accessed
  • Learn from employers about the skills they will need at work
  • Have received advice and guidance from a qualified careers advisor


At TDPC we are committed to meeting The 8 Gatsby Benchmarks as below:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with Employers and Employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with Higher Education
  8. Personal Guidance


We aim to work with all Parents and the local community.  Please if you are able to support us contact our admin team.  We are keen to further develop:

  • Enterprise mentoring
  • Workplace visits
  • Work experience for a day or half day per week
  • Part time work (out of school hours)
