Strategy and Vision

The Mandeville School Careers Curriculum has been designed in line with the school values to establish a kind community where everyone perseveres, achieves, and flourishes, where we enable all to experience life to the full. 

Our Intent is to be a kind community by encouraging every student to work towards independent living and working. Through choice, hope, and optimism, adaptability, and resilience to access and engage in decent work in all its forms, both voluntary and paid and provide opportunities to learn and make progress in the pursuit of wellbeing and happiness. 

We aim for our students to develop perseverance and achievement by encouraging lifelong learning and providing opportunities to develop key employability skills which are highly valued by employers, universities, and apprenticeship providers. 

We strive to ensure all students can flourish through a curriculum that nourishes personal development by giving students opportunities to explore their identity and grow their character, equipped with all the information needed to be able to make an effective contribution to society. 

Our curriculum enables students to experience life to the full through a curriculum that inspires and enriches them with meaningful knowledge and cultural capital. High aspirations mean study a broad range of subjects in key stage three and have a variety of routes through key stage four and five which are challenging and aspirational, equipping them with the skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding as a foundation for managing their lifelong career and learning. 

The Careers Programme 

The CEIAG programme has been developed to engage parents and local employers, both in school and externally, to support our students to become employable and aspirational young people in accordance with the recommended Gatsby Benchmarks and conforms to the statutory requirements.

Our approach has been to embed careers education throughout the curriculum as well as using off timetable days, experiences of workplaces, assemblies and trips and visits.

Monitoring, Review and Evaluation 

The CEIAG programme is monitored and evaluated annually. Reviewing the CEIAG programme takes account of the school’s Accelerated Improvement Plan to ensure the programme continues to support the school’s aims.  

The effectiveness of our provision is reviewed via the Compass Plus online evaluation tool.  This tool is used by schools and colleges in England to support the analysis and evaluation of careers activity against the eight benchmarks of best practice.  It ensures that the development of our careers strategy is ongoing. 

 This will next be reviewed on 9/09/24
