The Lambeth Academy is committed to delivering a robust framework for students across KS3, KS4 and KS5. The dedicated careers team lead by Ms Ampah have developed an employability model designed to work with the requirements of Ofsted to ensure that all students receive adequate and sufficient guidance and information to support and inform their career pathways and decisions. The Academy’s agenda to raise aspiration and the marketable prospects for all learners is one that is embedded across all aspects of the academy’s community. With regards to its learners, Lambeth Academy has a firm understanding of the wider importance of identifying what skills will make for a successful and purposeful student in the classroom and a more marketable employee in the workplace. Allowing our learners to have access to an effective careers education and guidance programme will help to contribute towards building a more secure infrastructure which will foster the sustainable well-being of young citizens.
Every week one tutor time session is dedicated to Careers Education, in addition CEIAG is delivered through the following channels:
