'To help young people help themselves'

Our Careers Programme

All pupils at Adelaide School follow a Careers Journey:


Careers education and guidance programmes make a major contribution to preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
A planned progressive programme of activities supports them in choosing KS4 & KS5 pathways that suit their interests and abilities and help them to follow a career path and sustain employability throughout their working lives.
Adelaide School has adopted the Careers Guidance and statutory requirements issued by the Department of Education in December 2017. We are using the Gatsby Benchmarks  to assess, review and develop our Careers Education programme.
Adelaide School offers a comprehensive and bespoke CEIAG provision for all pupils Y5-13.
Miss April Allcock delivers impartial advice and guidance to pupil in KS3, KS4 and KS5.  There are additional meetings if pupils, parents or other staff request it. There is also additional support from the Local Authority for all pupils regarding transition,

We work closely with the Local Education Partnership and our Enterprise Advisor, Tasha Rogerson:

We also work in close partnership with our local Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 providers. Transition is important and we work hard to ensure that pupils know the pathways open to them when they leave us and the courses available at the different colleges and learning providers.

We measure and assess the impact of our Careers Programme on pupils in a number of ways which include:

  • Pupil Career Surveys
  • Our destinations data
  • Successful outcomes from College courses in KS4
  • Meaningful Work Experience Placements which also enhance pupil's CV's
  • Employer appraisals for Work Experience Placements
  • Compass Plus is used to measure against the Gatsby Benchmarks
