Careers

A young person’s career is the progress they make in learning and work.  All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 pathways that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers and sustain employability throughout their lives.  Schools have a statutory duty to provide careers education in Years 8-13 and to ensure students have access to careers information and impartial guidance (1997 Education Act, DFE-0002-2018).

Fulston Manor School is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education and information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all students in Years 7-13, in partnership with CxK Ltd.

How is CEIAG delivered at Fulston Manor School?

The CEIAG programme is delivered in a variety of ways.  Some of these are age specific, others are more generic across all year groups:

12

CEIAG is delivered as part of the school’s PSHE programme, assemblies, and through guidance interviews with the school's Careers Advisor.  Much of this is focused on supporting students to make decisions about applying for a place in Higher Education, or moving into employment or further training.  Students will have the opportunity to visit a local university and participate in a range of activities offered by the University of Kent. Work experience is compulsory for all Year 12 students.

13

CEIAG is delivered through discrete careers support sessions, which focus initially on supporting students through their university applications, and in assemblies. Students are able to request interviews and discussions with key staff regarding progression beyond school. As much support as possible is provided to help students make good, informed decisions, but there is an emphasis in Year 13 on students being proactive in this process.

In addition to all the above, Fulston Manor School recognises the importance of careers guidance being impartial and independent to ensure that young people make well-informed decisions about their future careers.  Students are able to talk to any member of staff, in particular teaching staff and form tutors, who will offer guidance, or signpost them to other staff in a better position to help.  Students are also able to access information independently using school resources.

What resources are available in school?

In addition to staff, the following resources are available for students in any year group to access:

  • The Careers Library is accessible at lunchtime for students to research different career paths.
  • The school’s Careers Co-ordinator is in school throughout the year and is available in the Careers Library Monday to Friday during break and lunchtime for any students with questions regarding university/college entrance, careers or work experience. After-school support sessions are offered throughout the year on a Tuesday.
