You can view our careers Programme here:
Y10 & Y12 Work Experience
Y10 Work Experience Week: 8 – 12 July 2024
Y12 Work Experience Week: 5 – 9 February 2024
Throughout their time at Nunthorpe, students will follow the National Framework for Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance which looks at Career pathways for all students enabling them to make well informed realistic choices. In Years 10 and 11, they will also have a one to one interview with an independent careers advisor.
Our Academy and sixth form measures and assess the impact of the careers programme on students using the ‘Destinations data’.
The Academy’s next review of published information is July 2023.
The ‘Baker Clause’
The ‘Baker Clause’ is supporting students to understand the full range of education and training options Schools and colleges have a responsibility to set students on the path that will secure the best outcome which will enable them to progress in education and work and give employers the highly skilled people they need. That means schools and colleges must act impartially, in line with their statutory duty or contractual requirement, and not show bias towards any route, be that academic or technical. They should promote a full range of technical options.
Schools have an important role in correcting the imbalance in careers information which means that in years 9 and 10 far fewer students have been spoken to about technical choices in comparison to academic routes, and only 4% of young people start an apprenticeship after their GCSEs. Schools must open their doors to other education and training providers, in line with their statutory responsibilities under the ‘Baker Clause’, putting in place a range of opportunities for providers of technical education and apprenticeships to talk to all year 8 to13 pupils about their education or training offer.
This is vital to ensure that all pupils are aware of the benefits of apprenticeships, T Levels and other approved technical education qualifications and can consider them, alongside academic options, when making decisions about their next steps.
National Careers Week – 04 – 10 March 2024
As part of National Careers Week students are encouraged to access a virtual careers fair running all week.
Students and parent(s) / carer(s) will be able to access information from various interactive exhibitors. A parents guide is included and provides some excellent information to support students on T-levels, Work Experience, Apprenticeships, Vocational Routes and support for students when leaving school.
