The Careers and Progression curriculum at Fareham Academy is an embedded programme of career education and guidance with equality and diversity considerations throughout. Our PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Careers Education) programme encourages students to explore careers and progression from Year 7 through to Year 11. Students explore linked curriculum learning to careers with a particular focus on STEM subjects. We highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career routes relevant to our area.
Throughout their time at Fareham Academy, students have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This is delivered through a range of activities including our tutor programme and Focus Days, which include visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.
We participate in a range of projects to support students to understand the breadth of opportunities available to them in their future education, apprentice and employment aspirations, and collaborate with a number of organisations that support us in this aspiration.
During the summer term, Year 10 students have first-hand experiences of the workplace through our work experience programme to help their exploration of career opportunities. This programme is supported by EBP South (Education, Business Partnership South) and tutors to ensure this experience is valuable in providing opportunities to support making informed progression decisions.
Supported by EBP South, Year 11 students have opportunities for impartial guidance interviews with a Careers Adviser, accessing good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. Advice and support is tailored to the needs of each student.
The Careers and Progression curriculum provides a breadth of knowledge and supportive tools to support students in their aspirations.
