Careers & Employability

Welcome to the Careers & Employability Service at the Nottingham Emmanuel School

We believe that all of our students should have the right to develop skills to shape life well and have a positive impact on society.  We also believe that our careers and employability program should encourage each student to have hope and aspiration for their future and ensure the greatest degree of social mobility for all.  The careers service is therefore designed to support students at various stages of their academic journey, ensuring that they are able to make informed decisions about their future career choices and plan for careers that may not yet exist. Students can access a range of information, advice and guidance through our dedicated Careers Adviser – Mrs Newnham, activities outlined below and subject teachers in the school. As a school we are committed to delivering the Gatsby benchmarks below:

The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance

1. A stable careers programme
2. Learning from career and labour market information
3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
5. Encounters with employers and employees
6. Experiences of workplaces
7. Encounters with further and higher education
8. Personal guidance

Please can the following line be amended to read: ‘The careers service can be accessed through a number of ways from 1:1 careers appointments, drop-in sessions, workshops and employability activities tailored to meet the diverse needs of our students.  All of our students have a student account with START an online careers platform designed to connect our students with their future career profile and they access this regularly throughout their school career with us and beyond.

Access SMART

Any external providers and employers who are interested in providing our students with information on training and apprenticeship, please see our Provider Access Policy regarding how to get in contact.
