Careers learning at Sandgate School is built into our curriculum and involves aspects of students personal and social development. It is delivered in KS 3,4 and 5 but builds on the broad and balanced curriculum started in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and 2. It widens pupil’s horizons, challenges stereotypes and raises aspirations. We support our pupils to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions throughout their life.

Where possible, students leave school aware of themselves as individuals, aware of the opportunities available to them and are supported to be able to make decisions about their future and own life. It connects their learning to their future. This promotes the key areas within the UN Rights of the Child which is explained in more detail here: UN Rights of the Child

We aim to equip our students with skills for working life by promoting functional skills and independence. This forms the basis of the learning entitlement for all students in KS3, 4 and 5. Improving motivation and attainment, self-esteem and developing long term realistic aspirations. Thus, preparing them for adulthood and, where possible, working life. The programme will promote equality of opportunity, inclusion and anti-racism.
