Careers & Employability
Welcome to our careers and employability page. At Stone Lodge School we recognise the importance of careers education, employability and enterprise and ensure that throughout the year, students have opportunities to engage positively with their futures, both in terms of increasing expectations and exploring the best routes into the careers that interest them. In line with the Department for Education guidance, we have a coordinated programme of careers support designed around the Gatsby Benchmarks ensuring we offer a coherent programme embedded within school structures.
We use The CDI’s Career Development Framework which describes the six career development skills that people need to have positive careers to inform our programme. The programme demonstrates the coherent programme of activities that inform, inspire and motivate our students, preparing them for work and helping them to understand where different education and training choices could take them in the future. The programme is reviewed annually, however information may be revised throughout the year to reflect new regulations. Currently, evaluation of our programme is demonstrated through stakeholders feedback with the date of the next review due in July 2021. A summary of our Careers Guidance Programme, student entitlements and Policy Access Statement can be viewed using the relevant link at the bottom of this page.
