THE CAREERS TEAM
- Whole School Careers Lead & Careers Advisor: Mrs Donna Johnson (email@example.com; Tel: 01653 605301)
- Sixth Form Careers Support: Mr Mark Dent (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Dr Anusha Simha (email@example.com)
At Malton School we have a wide range of careers opportunities for students throughout the school (Year’s 7-13). Mrs Johnson will provide careers support to students in Years 10 and 11 and some students in Year 9. If you have any careers related questions, would like any advice or would like your child to have an early careers appointment, please contact Mrs Johnson.
We have a whole school careers plan in place. A copy of this and our careers policy can be found below. The program is reviewed each academic year. The next review is September 2023.
CAREERS STATUTORY GUIDANCE
The DfE released a new statutory guidance document in January 2018, including a number of new requirements for school careers programmes, most of which are to be met by the end of 2020. Most of the requirements are already met at Malton School, but we are working towards those that are not.
The most immediate requirement is for all schools to have a policy for ‘Provider Access’ that sets out the arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school. At Malton School we welcome continued input from both existing and potential new partners. Our Provider Access Policy can be found here.
Malton School’s careers program is based around the government’s Gatsby Benchmarks:
- A stable careers programme – You can view our careers program here Whole School Careers program
- Learning from career and labour market information – Please click here to access a guide to labour market information.
- Addressing the needs of each pupil
- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounters with employers and employees
- Experience of workplaces
- Encounters with further and higher education
- Personal guidance – Julie Wood (Independent Careers advisor)
For the academic year 2021-2022, Malton school is part of the Skills builder partnership and has achieved the Bronze Award. The framework is used to support children and young people to:
- Understand their existing skills – reflecting on where their essential skills currently are, and being able to identify any gaps they might have.
- See what progress looks like – being able to see what the next steps are to improve their essential skills further.
- Join the dots – using a consistent language and understanding of essential skills to understand how they are used and practiced in lots of different settings.
- Capturing success – seeing progress and being able to better articulate their skills.
Skills builder has eight essential skills. Known by different names, these eight skills map across to the four domains that come up time and again as the core, transferable skills for employment:
- Problem solving
- Staying positive
- Aiming high
