Careers Programme at London East Academy

At London East Academy, we aspire for all our graduates to progress into a career that is tailored to their personal ambitions and which allows them to realise their full potential. We recognise the importance of teaching a broad and balanced curriculum that offers students the academic currency needed to progress in their careers, as well as offering a programme of extra-curricular support that ensures they develop clear, ambitious and realistic plans for the future. ”
LEA welcomes education and training providers to engage with students. The Provider Access Policy offers providers the opportunity to review current opportunities for access. Many of these events will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to and work with students and/or their parents/carers. ”

A stable careers programme Every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by students, parents, teachers, governors and employers.
Learning from career and labour market information Every student, and their parents, should have access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. They will need the support of an informed adviser to make best use of available information.
Addressing the needs of each student Students have different career guidance needs at different stages. Opportunities for advice and support need to be tailored to the needs of each student. A school’s careers programme should embed equality and diversity considerations throughout.
Linking curriculum learning to careers All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths.
Encounters with employers and employees Every student should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This can be through a range of enrichment activities including visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.
Experiences of workplaces Every student should have first-hand experiences of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing and/or work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.
Encounters with further and higher education All students should understand the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. This includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace.
Personal Guidance Every student should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a career adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all students but should be timed to meet their individual needs.
