Careers Information for External Providers

What’s On at De Warenne Academy?

Keep up to date with our careers events & information through our school Twitter page @DeltaDeWarenne

Careers Cafes Employer & Educational Institution Visits

Throughout the year our careers team organise different events inviting external organisations into the Academy, including:

  • Universities
  • Colleges
  • Local Businesses
  • Apprenticeship Providers

Here at De Warenne we value the input from businesses and local providers to give our students the best possible careers provision.  

Our Careers programme runs from Year 7 to Year 11 and prepares students well for life after they leave school. It has been designed to align with the eight Gatsby Benchmarks which have been recognised by the government as outlining the requirements of an excellent careers programme.

Students have many encounters with employers and learn about the different careers and the various routes into these careers. It helps students to find careers that suit them and prepare them to follow their desired path.

Students learn about the different work sectors and are taught to challenge the various stereotypes and discrimination that exists in the world of work. Students learn how to take responsibility for their own careers by planning for the future.

They learn how to create an effective CV and learn useful skills such as developing a professional and successful interview technique.

Careers Education helps young people to develop the knowledge, confidence and skills that they need to make well-informed, thought- through choices and plans that enable them to progress smoothly into further learning and work, now and in the future. As an academy we must ensure that high quality information and guidance enables our pupils to make the best of their talents and achieve their ambitions by choosing the pathway that is right for them. 

All providers (Apprenticeship Providers, Employers, Colleges and UTCs etc.)can access students to promote their programmes in a variety of ways including: 

  • Careers Cafes – promote particular employment sectors and the routes into those industries 
  • Careers & Aspirations Fairs – large events where all providers can access parents and students 
  • Key Stage 3, 4 Options Evenings – focused next step curriculum and career pathway events for choices at GCSE, A Level and beyond. 
  • CEIAG Step Up Days – Whole school careers themed events
