Careers education, information, advice and guidance
Ken Stimpson Community School is proud of the excellent quality and impartial careers education, information and advice we offer our students. Careers education is incorporated within PHSE lessons in Years 7-11 where students use both traditional and on-line resources to enable self-development and investigation of careers and future educational choices. Throughout the school, collapsed curriculum days are used to supplement careers education during timetabled lessons. We have a specialist teaching area in the Library housing a comprehensive Careers Library, which contains up-to-date information on the world of work and further education.
Ken Stimpson Community School is committed to delivering independent information, careers advice and guidance. This enables students to make informed and personally appropriate decisions regarding transition during their school career and beyond. In particular, as part of a comprehensive Careers programme, students in Years 8 to Post 16 have in-school access to an independent Careers Adviser. We are particularly fortunate that this Adviser lives locally and thus is extremely well informed regarding local college courses, apprenticeships and the local market in general.
