Welcome to Careers and the World of Work at
Boston Endeavour Academy
Whether or not our learners progress into the world of work, we aim for all our students to leave Boston Endeavour Academy with a greater understanding of the world in which they live.
We provide opportunities for our students to access a wide range of community services and facilities and encourage them to use this knowledge of their area to become autonomous young adults and take part in making decisions about their future.
In our primary classes, career skills are taught discretely and inclusively across all ages and abilities to prepare our pupils for adulthood. From Year 7 and above, we follow the Department for Education’s statutory careers guidance.
We follow the learning aims of the CDI Career Development Framework which identifies the six career development skills that people need to have a positive career.
We are in the Skills Builder Partnership. As part of our curriculum, we teach eight essential skills. We link these skills to jobs, daily lives and classroom learning.
We use Talentino’s Careers at Every Level programme to enhance our career related learning opportunities.
The Talentino resources support our progress towards pupils achievement of the Gatsby Benchmarks.
We use Compass+, a tool from The Careers & Enterprise Company, to benchmark, manage, track and report on our Careers Programme. Compass+ uses pupil-level data for targeted delivery and effective evaluation.
We complete our evaluations of the Gatsby Benchmarks three times per academic year with our Enterprise Coordinator and/or our Enterprise Adviser and Careers Governor. All careers related activities and our Careers Partners are added to Compass+.
Are you an employer? How can you get involved?
If you are able to offer work experience opportunities within your business setting, or you could give up some of your time to deliver a talk or workshop to our pupils about your business, we would love to hear from you!
Please email our Deputy Headteacher, Amanda Brooks, on firstname.lastname@example.org
We are very lucky to already work with some great local businesses to provide meaningful work experience placements for our students. Whilst on a placement, students receive endless opportunities to increase many skill sets such as:
– Following instructions
– Handling money
Work experience is a great opportunity to watch our students shine outside of the school environment and see them grow in confidence with each session.
