          careers education and guidance

          in 2016, the careers department at sir john lawes school gained the ‘investor in careers quality standard’ and is currently undergoing reaccreditation.

          the award reflects a commitment to achieving all 8 of the gatsby benchmarks, as highlighted as the indicator for good quality careers provision in the department for education’s careers strategy, dec 2017.

          it is hope that reaccreditation will be achieved by december 2019.

          the gatsby benchmarks:

          1. a stable careers programme. every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by students, parents, teachers, governors and employers.
          2. learning from career and labour market information. every student, and their parents, should have access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. they will need the support of an informed adviser to make best use of available information.
          3. addressing the needs of each student. students have different career guidance needs at different stages. opportunities for advice and support need to be tailored to the needs of each student. a school’s careers programme should embed equality and diversity considerations throughout.
          4. linking curriculum learning to careers. all teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. stem subject teachers should highlight the relevance of stem subjects for a wide range of future career paths.
          5. encounters with employers and employees. every student should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. this can be through a range of enrichment activities including visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.
          6. experiences of workplaces. every student should have first-hand experiences of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing and/or work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.
          7. encounters with further and higher education. all students should understand the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. this includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace.
          8. personal guidance. every student should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a career adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. these should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made.

           

          guidance

          students across all year groups are offered access to careers guidance, upon request, and all year 11 students have a one-to-one careers interview. 
           
          in addition, drop-in sessions are offered on tuesday, wednesday and thursday lunchtime, in the careers office, located in the library.

          the school has been awarded the full quality standard award for careers provision, and in 2016 won the herts chamber of commerce award in the category for 'education in employment'.
