Careers and Higher Education Guidance

Lambeth Academy is committed to delivering a robust Careers and HE Guidance programme to all students in Years 7-13. The careers programme enables our students to explore various career routes as soon as they start their journey at the Academy. The aim of the programme is to provide them with an understanding of the world of work and support them in making decisions about their future. All careers activities are developed in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Career Guidance.

Summary of the Careers Programme:

 Career Provision

Year 7

All students in Year 7 have an opportunity to start exploring various career sectors  and the pathways that lead to them. The online platform Kudos allows students to  create skills profiles and search for information about specific jobs based on their   trengths and interests.

Year 8

In Year 8, students continue using the Kudos application in addition to PSHE  programme delivered in tutor time with focus on financial literacy and careers,  particularly in STEM.

Year 9

One of the aims of our Careers Programme is ensuring that students engage with  professionals from various industries. We hold regular workshops provided by       My Kinda Future that focus on developing students’ employability skills. In   addition,  we regularly host guest speakers from businesses and universities to talk   about their career journeys.

Year 10

 A dedicated team of Enterprise Advisors from the Careers and Enterprise Company   facilitates CV workshops designed for students in Year 10 who all have to create   their first CVs as part of the preparation for their work experience. All Year 10   students undertake a compulsory work experience week during May half term.   This  is an ideal opportunity for students to develop their confidence and   independence while experiencing the world of work.

Year 11

All students in Years 10-13 take part in mock interviews with industry leaders as well as civil servants and academics. Assemblies and workshops are delivered by guest speakers on apprenticeships and vocational qualifications.

Year 12

Early in Year 12, students start exploring specific university courses in detail. The online platform Unifrog allows students to compare undergraduate programmes around the UK and make well informed decisions before completing UCAS applications.

Year 13

IntoUniversity are an educational charity that focuses on raising students’ aspirations when it comes to their future pathways. Our Sixth Formers participate in workshops on choosing courses and universities as well as on student finance and other aspects of life at university.


The impact of the Careers Programme is regularly assessed by short post-activity feedback forms as well as larger end-of-year surveys. The careers team value student feedback and strive to implement student suggestions in planning of future activities. The impact of our Careers Programme is further measured through the destination data by looking at the number of post-16 and post-18 leavers going into further education, employment or training.
