VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Careers advice and guidance

ALL pupils will receive independent and impartial careers guidance.

This may take many different forms, including information evenings, outside speakers in PSHE and enrichment programmes, careers fairs, meetings with mentors, transition meetings for vulnerable and SEN pupils and advice on work experience programmes.

Students can pop in to the Careers Meeting Room at any time, to look at resources or ask a question (and there are no silly questions!) and they can also have a face-to-face interview with an independent adviser.

Here at Vale of York, we work with a range of other schools, further and higher education providers, and work-based training and apprenticeship providers in order to ensure that our pupils have access to a range of options at each stage of their education.

We also make sure that our students have clear guidance on:

  • GCSE and post-16 options
  • The local and national employment market, we work with local employers, NYBEP and other agencies to ensure our pupils receive up-to-date information
  • Enterprise opportunities

The focus is on skills, attributes and future employability for our pupils which we will concentrate on through lessons, assemblies, collapsed timetable days, work experience and visits as well as careers guidance interviews.

 

Watch this great video about choosing GCSE options:

Careers in the Curriculum

The table below shows the careers topics pupils complete in each school term. These are weekly one-hour lessons as part of the PSHE programme for pupils and can take up to six lessons to complete.

We also have three enrichment days each year. At least one for each year group will cover aspects of careers and enterprise education.

We have an assembly rota which has weekly themes of all pupils in the academy, 10 of the 39 assemblies will have a Careers and Enterprise Guidance direct link, with other assemblies having indirect links to careers education.

Each year group will have extra educational opportunities within the school year from outside speakers, careers fairs, and work experience.

Each department will incorporate careers and enterprise subject-related opportunities in the form of lessons, visits, speakers, industrial briefs and display subject careers information in the department for pupils to access.
