Careers Education is an important part of the school curriculum. It features a co-ordinated programme, which involves the whole school community: pupils, parents, staff and local business people. Learning co-ordinators, tutors, subject teachers and the Careers Co-ordinator work in partnership with the Careers Service to provide a well-developed approach to Careers, which is matched to the individual needs of the pupil.
The main aim of Careers Education at Malet Lambert is to ensure that all pupils are effective planners and managers of their own careers in a rapidly changing world of learning and work.
Our belief at Malet Lambert is that all pupils are entitled to Careers Education and Guidance which:-
Careers Education is an integral part of the PSCHE programme for years 7 - 11. Subject teachers are also encouraged to talk with pupils about their career aspirations and can refer pupils to careers staff to gather further information. Staff from local colleges and training providers attend parents’ evenings offering parents and pupils the opportunity to discuss progression routes after year 11. A Careers Fair is held annually allowing pupils from years 9, 10 and 11 to talk with a range of careers providers. In year 10, pupils visit local colleges as part of the Taster Days programme. They also have the opportunity to take part in the flourishing Work Experience Scheme. In year 11, representatives from colleges and training providers deliver presentations to pupils before pupils complete applications through www.logonmoveon.co.uk .
There are a variety of parents’ evenings at which different aspects of careers are presented.
Malet Lambert is committed to providing the best careers guidance to its pupils. In response to the Government's renewed education strategy we have produced a programme outlining our bespoke careers provision for Years 7 through to Year 11.
This award-winning programme, which has seen much success at South Hunsley, will be rolled out at Malet Lambert from September 2018 for Year 10 pupils. It allows pupils who are interested in engineering to take part in a bespoke programme giving them access to mentoring, work placements, trips and an extensive employability skills development course. Take a look at our prospectus for more information.
HETA has a set recruitment process for those who wish to apply, which can be found here.
In March each year, Malet Lambert takes part in National Careers Week and runs a host of activities, enterprise challenges and careers information events. The aim is to encourage our pupils to start thinking about possible career options at an early stage.
