Careers Education, Information Advice & Guidance at Stantonbury Campus
This site has been designed for students, parents, staff and our partners in Education and Industry. It should be your first point of call for all Stantonbury Campus careers related information.
Careers forms part of the ASPIRE Centre at Stantonbury Campus dealing with a number of student support services. We work as a team to organise Careers Advice and the Careers Curriculum, Stantonbury Xtra and The Learning Hub - more information about these can be found by navigating the menu above.
All secondary Schools have a statutory duty to provide a programme of Careers Education to all students in Years 7 to 13. At Stantonbury Campus we are committed to providing a careers education and guidance entitlement for all students, recognising their need for high quality careers education and impartial guidance to help them make informed choices regarding their career plans. Careers education is integrated within the school curriculum and in particular through the PSHE programme and Learning for Life days.
In Years 7 to 11 students will undertake a varied programme of careers education through the PSHE programme and Learning for Life days. All the activities are designed to develop students employability skills whilst at the same time provide valuable information about courses and careers available to them.
Karen Malone, is the Stantonbury Campus, careers advisor. Some students will be offered one to one guidance interviews during years 11, 12 and 13 and all students are able to access drop-in support. Parents are also welcome to attend the guidance interviews on request.
In Year 10 students have the opportunity to participate in Work Experience on either an extended basis or for a one week block organised through the school and an external company, Develop EBP. The choices for placements are varied and many. To support preparation for these placements students participate in a programme that includes mock interviews, application forms and telephone techniques.
Cooksey Sixth Form
Stantonbury has an outstanding record of progression into further and higher education for students. Most students choose to stay on after year 11 GCSEs to follow applied and more traditional courses. At Stantonbury it is possible to join Cooksey Hall, the post-16 Hall, and follow courses for one, two or three years before progressing to college, university or employment. We are able to offer certification to BTEC, GCSE and AS/A2 levels.
