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.
You can see exactly what you can expect from our careers provision in our infographic below:
Careers Guidance in mentor time
Our Key Stage 3 mentor programme utilises 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, 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 programme and its aims can be found here in our careers policy. If you would like to take a more in-depth look at our curriculum plan, you can find this here.
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 are available at key options stages. Our careers advisor is also available at each of our Parents' Evenings.
We offer all of our Year 12 students meaningful experiences of the workplace on our nationally recognised programme. In 2021 we offered all students a project-based experience with 32 sector based expert mentors. We have ambitious plans for growing this offer in the coming years.
Our Careers Policy
Our policy and provision is developed with the approval of our local Business Ambassadors, who give their time and expertise to ensure our programme is equipping a successful workforce for the future. Our careers related activity is also supported throughout the year by Business Mentors from a range of sectors who work directly with our students. For more information about our Business Ambassadors, Mentors and how to get involved with supporting careers activity at the school, please see our Who's Involved page.
