Sedgehill Academy Careers Education and Guidance policy has the following aims:
• To provide a stable careers programme
• To support learning from career and labour market information
• To address the needs of each student
• To link curriculum learning to careers where possible
• To provide encounters with employers and employees
• To provide opportunities for and guidance on workplace in education
• To offer personalised impartial guidance
At Sedgehill Academy, our vision is for all of our students to be equipped with the confidence and resilience they need to make informed, open-minded and ambitious decisions about the paths they take now and in the future. We want them to feel neither limited nor pigeonholed by their circumstances or people’s expectations.
Students will have access to a range of careers support delivered through a variety of ways such as drop down days, careers fairs, employer talks, guest speakers, one-to-one mentoring sessions and trips to workplaces, colleges and universities. All students will have a one to one guidance appointment delivered by an impartial qualified careers adviser in Years 10 and 12. Students will also be offered support at key transition points such as Year 9 options, Year 11 post-16 plans and Year 13 post-18 plans. All students in Year 10 will complete one week’s work experience and all students in Year 12 will have an entitlement of a further week’s work experience.
Any provider wishing to request access should contact Alex Mees, Library and Progression Coordinator, by phone on:
020 8461 9127 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We run a number of events, integrated into the school careers programme and will offer providers an opportunity to come into Sedgehill to speak to students and/or their parents. Please speak to our careers leader to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.
