At Leytonstone School careers education is viewed as critical to our young people’s success in raising their aspirations and ensuring they are able to become the very best version of themselves they can be. Leytonstone School is committed to providing students with high quality, independent advice and guidance with regards to careers, further and higher education and future life choices.
What Students Experience
Key Stage 3 students are aware of careers stereotypes and of their own personal attributes. They have special assemblies, enterprise days, and speakers from the real world of work and Further & Higher Education, team-building activities and support and guidance when selecting GCSE options. Pupils will also have the opportunity to begin action planning for further education, as well as accessing labour market information through an online platform to prepare all students for post-secondary success in academics, careers and life.
Key Stage 4 students have a deeper understanding of possible pathways post-16 and develop their career management skills, through specific tailored lessons and experiences. In addition to developing action plans through an online platform, they have opportunities to visit careers fairs, Further & Higher Education establishments and encounters with a range of employers, as well as support with applications, interviews and planning. They visit careers fairs and FE awareness events, apprenticeship workshops. We also have visits from alumni, post-16 providers and employers. Year 10 students will have the opportunity to spend up to two days work shadowing experience placement and all students leave with the ability to make decisions about destinations and future pathways.
