The Careers Programme in KS3 occurs in Citizenship classes.
This includes looking at many different career options. We look at college, university, apprenticeship options, how to get there, and if they have specific subject requirements. In KS4 and KS5, the Careers Programme is delivered through Form Time and/or drop down specific days to highlight the importance of correct choices to support chosen careers for all of our students.
In Year 9, all students have a careers interview with a member of the Senior Leadership Team. This is to ensure that they know their options for Year 10 and are choosing the right subjects for GCSE. Parents are invited to attend these interviews. It will be arranged at a time to suit those involved in the meeting.
Bourne End Academy uses the Gatsby Benchmark to ensure that it is giving all students the best opportunities in school, allowing the students to achieve their goals and putting them on the right track to achieve this.
We review the standards set by Gatsby every term. This allows us to look back at each term, see the improvements and put in place any new practices for the next part of each Academic Year.
