What skills and experience we're looking for

The postholder will work closely with the Director of Professional Development & Standards and the school’s own Careers Lead – a teacher with an additional responsibility for CAEIG - to work with personnel in and out of the school to meet and evidence the Gatsby benchmarks and ensure statutory guidance around PAL is met, ensuing that our students have access to the best possible careers information and guidance throughout their Secondary education.

The Careers’ Advisors main role is to provide comprehensive and individualised careers and training advice to students in both KS3 and KS4. Whilst most interviews are focused on years 10 and 11 (and with 6th form students in those schools offering post 16 education) the Trust recognises that advice and guidance might be appropriate for some students in KS3 and that more regular 1-2-1 interviews might need to be held for SEND and vulnerable learners.

Specific Responsibilities

  • Develop, at each school, a careers noticeboard sharing training and education routes and details of where students can get more information on them – most usually in a designated careers office.
  • Develop the contacts and relationships acquired with providers and employers to enable each student to undertake a work experience placement in year 9, 10 or 11.
  • Liaise with the school SENDCO to ensure that the most vulnerable students have an appropriate level of careers support. This could, where appropriate, involve meetings with students and their parents at KS4.
  • With the support of the in-school Careers Lead, devise and deliver a comprehensive and co-ordinated 1:2:1 programme of careers advice (and follow up where required)
  • Ensure that you attend events/training opportunities/briefings that enable you to carry out your post most effectively.
  • Train and develop school staff, when appropriate, on their role in meeting the statutory requirements.
  • Support and be involved with Ofsted inspections.
  • Be in school during set points in the summer holidays before, during and after the publication of exam results, to offer pertinent and timely advice to students with/without their parents on forward options.

What the school offers its staff

The Sapientia Education Trust (SET) was established in 2016 with the purpose of bringing like-minded schools together to work in partnership to deliver a world class education to pupils in Norfolk and Suffolk. SET currently consists of 7 secondary schools and 10 primary schools, educating over 5,500 pupils. Our schools range in size from the largest state boarding school in the UK, to several very small, rural schools and we all share the belief that high quality education is broad ranging and embraces strong extra-curricular provision and an expectation that all pupils can and should achieve.
