2 superb sessions with year 11 science students. Looking at core practical skills and really interrogating a method that’s slightly different to the original! A pleasure to teach 👍🏽🧪🔭 https://t.co/lgqzLtVnLI

Careers Information, Advice & Guidance

Careers Leader: Mr Brian Larkin

email: careers@destafford.org.uk

tel: 01883 347818

de Stafford School is committed to providing students with careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) throughout their school lives.

The careers programme includes careers education within Citizenship lessons, career guidance activities group work and individual interviews, work-related learning and organised events including mock interviews, careers support days and external careers fairs.

Year 7s will take part in trips into the world of work in various departments.

Year 8s will take part in a discovery day at Surrey University.

In year 9 students will be given a Careers Afternoon that focussed solely on thinking about What's Next? They will meet a wide variety of leaders in local businesses and colleges and will come away inspired with new ideas and with a clearer concept of what to do next.

In year 10 students are given the opportunity to experience a Business and Enterprise day, the purpose of this day is to prepare students for work experience by involving them in an ‘Apprentice’ / ‘Dragon’s den’ style activity. During this day they will get the chance to learn many aspects of business, including buying, marketing and finance. The day will also give students the opportunity to apply skills and develop knowledge in a ‘real life’ situation. Students will be working in teams, given a brief and a budget and will spend the morning developing their ideas. In the afternoon they will present these ideas to a panel of judges who will decide whether they will ‘invest’ in their business. All students will have a formal interview with an employer throughout the day which will last about 10 minutes. To prepare properly for this, they will prepare a professional CV during SAM time in school.

Year 10s and 11s will have a program of Careers Guidance delivered by a specialist Careers Service called Innervate, which includes careers questionnaires, workshops based on interest and one-to-one careers interviews for those that need help to decide what to do next.

For further information about our careers programme, please contact Brian Larkin ,Careers Leader brian.larkin@destafford.org.uk.
