We are delighted to announce that the school is working with Lambeth and their consultants to achieve the Investor in Careers Award. This will involve providing careers advice and learning opportunities for all students from Year 8 onwards.
We will be working with employers and organisations such as Spark Work Experience Agency and we will also be meeting with the Brixton Pound organisation to discuss how our students can gain insights into local businesses and work with them to develop their understanding and experience.
Other key aspects of our work will include:
Producing a Careers Strategy during 2017 in line with Ofsted framework.
Developing Careers based learning through the PSHE programme.
Working with the Lambeth Careers Cluster to achieve the above.
Attending relevant meetings as part of the Cluster and pooling ideas with other SEND schools.
Achieving work experience placements for Year 11 / 12 students through our existing partnership with Sparks Work Experience Agency.
Achieving further placements through employers engaged with the Lambeth Careers Cluster.
Preparing students for work experience through Industry Insight Days and Interview skills sessions.
Further preparation through training provided by Lambeth Working.
Engaging with employers in the local area.
Meeting / liaising with parents / carers to inform them about the work experience programme.
Attending Lambeth Apprenticeships events.
