Careers Education and Guidance

 

Freemantles is committed to delivering Careers using the Gatsby Benchmarks as guidance. We have a trained Careers Lead, are members of the EnterpriseM3 LEP and use the Compass+ programme to track of individual progress.

We will meet the careers needs of the students in the following ways:

  • Students will have opportunities to learn the skills needed in the work place and the wider community.
  • There will be opportunities to learn about money and finance.
  • Enterprise opportunities will be given.
  • Functional skills will be taught that will include form filling and interview skills as appropriate.
  • There will be opportunities to visit different places where people work and meet a variety of people working in a range of jobs.
  • Visitors will be invited to come and talk about their jobs in assemblies and workshops.
  • As they get older students will learn vocational skills and have opportunities for work experience.
  • Parents and students have yearly opportunities to learn about Life after Freemantles with visiting speakers from colleges and other agencies.
  • Students will be encouraged and taught how to contribute to meetings relating to their future.
  • Links are made with mainstream colleges to aid transition.
  • Every student has tutorial time when individual skills and needs can be identified and developed.

 

These skills have been broken down into pathways. This table shows what different cohorts will encounter and when we will deliver careers learning:
