At Q3 Langley, our ethos to “seek for that which is good, right and true”, courses through the veins of everything we do. We think that it is only good and right, being located in a demographic area characterised by disadvantage, that we seek to level the playing field, and that starts with raising aspirations and galvanizing dreams about future possibilities unrestricted by socio-economic factors.

At Q3 Langley we want our children and young people to be inspired, irrespective of present circumstances that might undermine life chances, and to aspire towards the fulfilment of their potential. That is why our re-branded Careers and Employability Program ‘Careers at Q3’ will seek to inspire all of our students to reach their true potential.

We are committed to social mobility and that starts with a programme, which responds not only to government directives for schools and colleges as pertains to employability, but also the needs of our school community within our local demographic here in Langley.

Therefore, we aim to offer a programme, which provides opportunity, experience and exposure to a world of possibilities to all of our students right from Year 7 and through to Year 11.

As a Gatsby Hub school, our endeavour is that through a robust programme of delivery, responding to a strategic vision that seeks to enhance life chances of all our students, that our efforts will make a tangible difference not just to the present generation, but also for future generations to come within this local community.

We believe every student is entitled to high-quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) as part of their education. We aim to support students to make realistic and informed decisions about their future, by raising aspirations and providing impartial and independent information and guidance. This will help our students to choose their pathways, improve their life opportunities and contribute to a productive and successful economy. If you would like more information relating to our CEIAG Programme Delivery then please click on the document below.

At Q3 Langley, our careers provision (CIEAG) exposes students to a range of activities each year, ensuring quality careers guidance is embedded, so that students are better equipped to make informed choices about their next steps.  We inspire students to chase and achieve their dreams, helping them access information on the full range of post-16 education and training opportunities. The careers provision is continuously reviewed and quality assured in order to meet statutory requirements, whilst striving to go above and beyond, to ensure all students leave Q3 Langley well prepared for their transition to the next stage. Evaluation highlights that we are meeting 100% of Gatsby Benchmark 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 , 7 and 8, with 1 being 82%.
