Personal Statement from Careers Lead

I am passionate about supporting our young people to ensure they have the right skills, knowledge and support ready for adulthood.

The programme has been devised to provide a number of opportunities for young people to allow them to put into practice the skills they are learning within school and out in the community. We are keen to work with local people, schools and organisations collaboratively to help support not only our young people but the local community.

For our young people who desire for employment, we will be working with local employers, to prepare for this next stage through things like work place tours, work experience and job shadowing.

Daventry Hill School is working towards achieving all 8 of Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020 in accordance with the Department of Education’s statutory guidance January 2018.

Individual student progress is assessed through Skills Builder, personalised to the needs of the individual. Student and stake-holder feedback will be a fundamental part of our Careers Programme; each encounters, topic or project will be followed by a feedback session on what went well and what could have gone better to allow continuous development.
