Manningtree High School Careers provision aims:
• To enable students to develop a knowledge and understanding of education, training, and employment through investigating opportunities available to them at a local, national, and international level
• To support students in developing and implementing action plans with the Independent Careers Advisor so that they can take ownership of their own future at and beyond Key Stage 4.
• To support students in their applications for post-16 education.
• To provide opportunities to develop enterprise and employment skills.
• To promote equality of opportunity, challenge stereotyping and support inclusion.
• To help students develop an understanding of themselves and others.
Personalised Careers Guidance: during KS4 all pupils will receive an individual careers guidance interview with a level 7 qualified independent careers advisor
Unifrog: From September 2020 all students will have access to the online destinations platform Unifrog. Unifrog is an online platform which supports secondary schools to deliver their statutory duty to provide students with impartial and independent guidance on their full range of options. Once students have explored their subject interests and compared post-16 pathways available to them, Unifrog provides one place for students to draft all materials needed for applications. Students can use the CV and personal statement builder tool to prepare their applications. Successful applications are made easier as students can keep a record of their activities and skills development from Y7-Y11.
Careers Advice: group sessions on different aspects of further study and careers takes place during focus days and period R sessions. Careers knowledge, skills and experiences are also developed during focus days and period R sessions.
Curriculum Focuses: topics and individual lessons within subjects focus on different aspects of careers (e.g. employment sectors in Geography, persuasive writing in English).
Careers Events: we provide opportunities for students in every year group to develop their careers knowledge, skills, expertise, and experiences through career events. These events range from the post-16 information evening to taster days and options assemblies.
Local Education and Training Provider Links: We work closely with local education and training providers to ensure that students and parents are aware of the different pathways available to them (e.g. A Levels, vocational courses, apprenticeships, technical qualifications). Students have the opportunity to meet local education and training providers in post-16 assemblies and at the post-16 information evening.
Employers and Employee Links: We work closely with local employers and employees to provide multiple opportunities for students to learn about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace.
