Careers at Jane Lane School
Jane Lane School are committed to Careers Education as a vital means of giving all students the skills, knowledge and understanding to manage their own lifelong learning and career development. Careers Education will prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of education, training and employment and also the challenges of adult life.
- Self-development – to increase self-awareness and gain confidence in making decisions and choices concerning education, training and work. Students need to be able to assess their strengths, limitations and potential to facilitate sensible decision-making.
- World of Work – to access and examine sources of information so that they are aware of the range of courses and progression routes open to them at 16+. This will involve group and individual guidance and pupils will be encouraged to use a range of websites and use an online psychometric careers assessment tool from the Careersoft JED computer package.
- Career Management – students will create a career action plan with smart targets in Key Stage 4 Basic Skills lessons. This will enable them to negotiate the key transition to employment or training.
- Transition – students will be effectively supported to deal with their key career decision making transition points at Years 9 and 10, Year 11 and onwards. This support will be provided during Careers lessons, at Careers events both within and outside of school, Careers meetings with the Advisor and by the Careers Lead.
