CAREERS & Y11 DESTINATIONS
Due to the Covid Pandemic all face to face visits, visiting speakers and work experience placements have been replaced by virtual opportunities where possible. This will remain the situation until the legislation changes.
We offer a well-structured careers programme that meets the needs of our pupils. All learners have a planned progression of lesson and activities to help them in Preparation for Adulthood. The careers programme includes lessons and careers guidance activities. Other events include a further/higher education visits which are provided at different times of the year.
There is a dedicated careers library where pupils can use resources or access information regarding future pathways. JCP (Job Centre Plus) advisers work with school to advise on Work Experience opportunities, routes into traineeships and apprenticeships and the local labour market.
Our young people are all very different and therefore the support they need to learn, make choices and ultimately post 16 decisions and beyond has to be varied. Opportunities for advice and support need to be tailored to the needs of each student. Milton School’s careers programme embeds equality and diversity considerations throughout. The careers programme is a thread that runs throughout the secondary phase of the school and is related to curriculum learning.
All students have opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This can be through, for example visiting speakers, careers fairs, work related learning.
Through the careers programme students have first-hand experiences of the workplace through work visits as well as a bespoke work experience opportunity.
All students, whatever their ability are informed of the full range of options available to them so they can make an informed choice when making decisions at 16. This will include the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. This includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges and the workplace.
Every student has the opportunity for a guidance interview with a career adviser.
