The aim of the Careers Department is to provide up-to-date advice, guidance, information and support for all students to help them to:
Make informed choices about the full range of available options
Develop their future career ideas and plans
Make a successful transition into adult life
The ‘Introduction to the Careers Department’ link below outlines the full range of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) services offered to students, including the activities and learning taking place in each Key Stage. There are also links to the Learner Entitlement statement (which outlines support all students can expect during their time at Kingdown School) and the school CEIAG policy.
Employer and Parent Engagement
Kingdown School is very keen to develop improved links with the employers, businesses, other organisations and parents who work within our local community. Through your involvement, support and personal experience, we feel our students will be able to gain a greater awareness and understanding about the world of work and the careers and opportunities available to them in the future, helping to broaden horizons and raise aspirations. There are also benefits for your organisation in terms of potential recruitment of our talented students as future employees, apprentices or volunteers.
We are aiming to develop a database of contacts and possible offers of help. Any contribution you or your organisation can make can make a significant difference. Some examples of support offered might be careers talks to students, work experience placements, help with mock interviews, workplace visits, mentoring or notifying us of upcoming opportunities within your organisation.
If you would like to help, please contact Ms Gale (Kingdown Careers Advisor) on 01985 224249 or at firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, you can complete the ‘Parents In Partnership’ questionnaire on the link below detailing the support you are able to offer, and then email it to Ms Gale at the address above.
