A programme that supports every child at each step of their journey
At Shoreham Academy, our programme of careers provision focuses on what our students need to know at each part of their development with us, as well as equipping them with the essential skills for life beyond compulsory education.
Careers Guidance in mentor time
Our Key Stage 3 mentor programme utilises a skills-builder. For more information on skills-builder, click here.
In Key Stage 4, students will move to the bespoke 'Pathways' programme which is designed to equip them with all the information they will need to make their post-16 options choices.
In Sixth Form, the mentor delivered information, advice and guidance is delivered in the form of an enrichment carousel. Students can choose the sessions they attend based on their aspirations in this personalised programme of information, advice and guidance.
More in-depth information about our careers programme can be found here when available.
*Please note: the careers software platform Unifrog is currently being rolled out across all year groups.
All our 1-to-1 guidance is delivered by our in-house qualified careers advisor, who students will see in Year 11 and again by Year 13.
Appointments are run alongside our break time careers drop-ins to ensure support is available to students when they most need it. Support for parents in the form of question-and-answer sessions and virtual support is available at key options stages. Our careers advisor is also available at each of our Parents' Evenings.
