We aim to:
- Foster partnerships with local, national and global organisations and businesses to enhance student opportunities.
- Source and provide up-to-date information about occupations, fields of work, courses, work experience opportunities and research organisations.
- Help students understand and develop the necessary skills to equip them for whatever career path they choose.
- Provide opportunities for students to understand their competencies, aspirations and options through a variety of means, including personal discussion with professional advisers.
- Promote the exchange of ideas between members of the academy and representatives of other organisations on matters affecting the employment of our students.
- Provide our services impartially, confidentially, efficiently and free from discrimination, adhering to national codes of good practice and professional standards.
- Recruit, train and develop staff at all levels, to enable these aims and objectives to be met.
In conjunction with tutors, the staff of the Careers Department prepares Maltings Academy students for life after school by running courses for specific year groups, organising suitable events and encouraging in our pupils independence of thought and action. Although the majority of pupils from the school apply to a university or apprenticeships, no young person should feel they are on a ‘production line’, and the processes of discernment and decision-making are nurtured in many different contexts of school life.
