Ken Stimpson Academy has a rich and diverse careers programme to help support students now and in their future.
Our mission is to ensure that every student is aware of the career possibilities available to them. We aim to show them how the foundations they lay at Ken Stimpson prepare them for life beyond school.
At Ken Stimpson Academy our Careers and Enterprise provision helps raise young people’s aspirations and promotes access to all career pathways enabling all young people to develop the skills and outlook they need to achieve career wellbeing, including adaptability and resilience. We are able to achieve this by developing a careers programme which follows the Department of Education’s guidance using the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks:
- A stable careers programme
- Learning from career and labour market information
- Addressing the needs of each pupil
- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounters with employers and employees
- Experiences of workplaces
- Encounters with further and higher education
- Personal guidance
Pupils, parents, teachers and employers may access our careers programme from our website. There is information on provision for each year group 7 through to 13.
The school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme by evaluating each activity with the student and the provider, we also assess progression data and destination data.
The school reviews the information provided on an annual basis in the summer term.
