Students receive a comprehensive careers education programme which is within the curriculum and which follows the Gatsby Benchmarks. Our students have the opportunity to access individual and group careers guidance from an independent specialist.
Our students have access to accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive careers information at appropriate levels and through a wide variety of media.
We aim to offer a bespoke curriculum so that all students can access the different vocational courses if there is a specific interest. This may lead to vocational qualifications. Students have opportunities to listen to external speakers who will come into the Academy and talk to students positively about the opportunities that are available to them after year 14.
Careers Education is delivered at Milestone in Phases 3 & 4. How this is delivered is differentiated by pathway and department. We identify effective Careers education as supporting students to develop their
- Self-Improvement as a learner
How we support our students to develop in these areas is cross-curricular, and where appropriate will go beyond discrete Careers Lessons, forming an integral part of that young person’s curriculum. Students work towards a variety of qualifications, including accreditations in Work-Related Learning, and BTEC units in Preparation for Work.
Some of our students in Year 14 may also access Supported Internships or Apprenticeships.
