Kingsthorpe College, Northampton

Kingsthorpe College has a statutory duty to ensure that all registered pupils, from year 8 to year 13, are provided with independent and impartial careers guidance.

Students need help to make choices and manage transitions: they need good quality careers education, information, advice and guidance.

Specifically, students need access to:

  • comprehensive and up to date information on the full range of options in education, training and work, accompanied by information on the progression opportunities that follow from each of those options;
  • Timely and impartial advice and guidance;
  • Programmes of careers education that equip them to make effective use of the information, advice and guidance provided and to develop their career management and employability skills.


What is Careers Education and Guidance?

The CEIAG programme recognises the need for young people from Year 7 to develop career management skills so that they are better prepared to take their key decisions – Key Stage 4 Options in Year 9 and their Post 16 Options in Year 11. Students acquire the skills to:

  • Investigate learning and career opportunities
  • Make informed judgements about learning and career options
  • Understand how these choices will help them to achieve their ambitions
  • Enable them to successfully manage key transition points

The Careers programme at Kinsgthorpe College is developed in consideration of the CDI (Career Development Institute) framework and the Gatsby Report’s benchmarks.  Three key areas are:

Self Development – through careers, employability and enterprise education

Careers Exploration – learning about careers and the world of work

Career Management – learning how to develop career management and employability skills (to include managing changes and transitions)

The guidance from the DfE places a duty on schools to secure access to unbiased and impartial careers guidance for their students.


Kingsthorpe College’s Careers Education and Guidance policy has the following aims:-

  • to contribute to strategies for raising achievement, especially by increasing motivation
  • to support inclusion, challenge stereotyping and promote equality of opportunity
  • to encourage participation in continued learning including higher education and further education
  • to develop enterprise and employment skills
  • to reduce drop out from and course switching in education and training
  • to contribute to the economic prosperity of individuals and communities
  • to meet the needs of all our students through appropriate differentiation
  • to focus students on their future aspirations
  • to involve parents and carers


What opportunities are offered in Careers Education and Guidance?

At Kingsthorpe College we are committed to providing students with a wide range of guidance and support to help them make the best choices for their futures. We offer learning opportunities through student development sessions and tutorials as well as one to one guidance from independent advisors and online support.
