Such brilliant and rich discussion generated in our seminar style lesson. Year 12s really impressed me with the depth and multiplicity of their interpretations of unseen poetry! https://t.co/Hjec0JJrZ5

Careers and Post 16

 

At Epping St John’s we strongly believe in planning ahead for our students’ futures. We understand the importance of making informed decisions, so we therefore make sure our students have access to all the relevant information and opportunities to help make these important choices regarding their future.

  • Our Careers Education and Guidance at Epping St John’s aims to prepare all students for their adult and working life by contributing to the development of the fully rounded individual. We firmly believe that students should always be given the opportunity to develop their knowledge of themselves and be able to utilise all the opportunities open to them. We have an excellent record of ensuring that our students secure Post 16 and Post 18 education places, resulting in the school having no NEETs for the past few years.
  • Starting as early as Year 8, we encourage students to start to consider their strengths and the skills they have through Form time and PHSE lessons which prepares them for future careers and curriculum choices for their GCSE subjects.
  • Students also have group sessions with Mrs Madden, our Careers Manager, about subject choices to personalise their conversations one on one.
  • We aim to help all students thoroughly investigate career opportunities through a range of educational experiences and we ensure that all students are given as much information and support as possible in order for them to make informed decisions about their GCSE choices and post 16/18 pathways.

ESJ is recognised for the significant strengths within our careers programme.  It's why we hold the National Recognition of Quality Award.

  • During their KS4 years, students will take part in a work experience placement. They will produce a good quality CV plus letters of application and have a mock interview with an external person from business or industry. They will be guided in making applications for apprenticeships, colleges and six forms as well as having one to one interview with Mrs Madden.
  • During KS5, students have a second work experience opportunity linked to their future career choice plus UCAS conventions and University trips as well as talks on different routes into careers, university, apprenticeships and work.
  • All students have access to information on different careers and how they link to the subjects they are studying though dedicated lesson plans in each department across the school, college taster days and roads shows, inspirational talks, assemblies, apprenticeship workshops, plus much more.

 

How can I support your careers programme at ESJ?

We run many careers events throughout the year.  If you are an employer/college/university/apprenticeship or a parent who would like to engage with the school we would love to hear from you.
