Careers

At Samuel Ryder Academy, we want our students to enjoy success and happiness both at school and beyond; as such, our central vision is to enable our students to leave us confidently equipped for life.  Whilst we hope (and expect) that our students will achieve ambitious academic goals, we also want them to acquire the relevant personal behaviours, values, and employability skills that will enable them to move forward with confidence into the next stage of their education, employment and future lives.

The Careers Co-ordinator and our Careers and Employability Specialist work closely to ensure that our students receive up-to-date, relevant and useful careers advice; as such, we have a specific Careers and Employability programme that provides informative, stimulating and age-appropriate advice to help our students to make informed and ambitious choices about their future. 

Our specific careers and employability education programme has two central objectives: firstly, to help our students to understand themselves, their personal preferences/interests, and their strengths and attributes; secondly, to provide our students with tangible opportunities to explore wider external markets and to understand the huge range of career opportunities available to them.

In addition to the specialist programme, we are also aware of the importance of adopting a holistic approach: we recognise that every teacher has a role to play in helping our students to be ‘ready for work’ and every tutor is well-placed to monitor the personal development of their tutees.  Through the PSHE programme and pastoral systems, for example, students receive career-based advice when choosing GCSEs, A-level and university courses. In addition, we are also lucky enough to be able to draw on the experience and expertise of our dedicated parent body and alumni who provide significant support for our many initiatives.

If you would like to find out more about Careers and Employability at Samuel Ryder Academy or if you are interested in providing support, please do contact Mrs H Potter

 

How is Careers, Employabilty and Enterprise Education taught at Samuel Ryder Academy?

Samuel Ryder Academy is working towards implementing the eight Gatsby Benchmarks in line with the Government’s Careers strategy: making the most of everyone’s own talent (December 2017).

The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

To enhance our provision, we also work with the Careers and Enterprise Company to ensure that we will fully meet the Gatsby Benchmarks.

Our Careers Review date is March 2020.
