At Malet Lambert School, we aim to help all pupils fulfil their potential and experience success through an educational environment, which responds to individual needs and stimulates and challenges each and every pupil.
Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is a high priority within our school, and is seen as crucial in preparing pupils to make decisions regarding the opportunities and challenges of adult and working life.
Information about potential post-16 opportunities, education pathways and career options is communicated via PSHE lessons, assemblies, curriculum lessons, face-to-face interviews, special events and via social media.
Advisory work is usually provided on a one-to-one basis but may also be provided in small or class groups.
Guidance aims to:
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:-
The processes of informing, advising and guiding pupils are accorded a high priority within our school, and are seen as crucial in preparing pupils to make decisions regarding the opportunities and challenges of adult and working life.
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.
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 .
If any pupil would like a careers interview to help them explore their future options, they can request this via their tutor, or contact our Careers Leader. We aim to offer ALL Year 11 pupils a one-to-one careers interview, to support them with the transition to post-16 education and training.
A hard copy of the Careers Programme can also be requested.
The Careers Leader is Miss Laura Powell. To get in touch please contact the school on 01482 374211 or email@example.com
Each year, Malet Lambert takes part in National Careers Week and Green Careers Week and run 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.
During a turbulent couple of years, our commitment to Careers Week activities has not waned. We have delivered activities virtually when we were not able to arrange in-person events. All pupils accessed a virtual careers fair, online work experience packages. Last year we were back to face-to-face activities, and all pupils across the school accessed careers education and activities as part of Careers Week.
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, and is a great resource for staff who would like to include careers information in curriculum lessons.
