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 Leader 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 PSHE 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.

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.
In 2020, National Careers Week was launched at the Royal Society in London and eight of our Young Enterprise Year 11 pupils were chosen to present their business idea and model to the audience, which was a fantastic honour.
This year, our NCW celebrations went virtual and all pupils accessed a virtual careers fair, online work experience packages and other CEIAG activities.
Labour Market Information (LMI) uses information and data found in charts, newspaper articles, reports and graphs to tell us what is happening in careers across the local and national area. It also helps to predict future trends in the job market.
