Careers Statement


'Pupils' destinations are appropriately suited to their high aspirations because they gain outstanding outcomes that support moves onto the right study programmes, training and employment.'  Ofsted 2017

Kingsdale Foundation School has been recognised for its outstanding careers work. The school has been awarded the national Quality in Careers Standard by Prospects.  The national Quality in Careers Standard is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their life after school. 

Careers Education Information and Guidance has a high profile in school, with the statutory Gatsby Benchmarks underpinning the programme.

Careers Education is integrated in the curriculum. Students are enabled to explore their own career aspirations throughout their life at school  and make informed decisions about their future career pathways through a structured programme of curricular and extracurricular activities. The programme aims to encourage students to be ambitious, broaden their horizons and explore their own career aspirations throughout their life at school, enable them to make informed decisions about their future career pathways and ensure their readiness to take the next step in their learning or career.  The careers team periodically evaluates the approach and we have the CEIAG development plan in place. The plan takes into account cdi careers audit to determine the learning outcomes.

At Kingsdale, we take very seriously our role and responsibilities in equipping our students for their future careers and the world of work. We engage our community, especially parents, in creating links with employers, employees and the world of work. The school is situated in South London with easy access to a range of occupations e.g. finance, law, performing arts and others. The school works with Southwark EBA to ensure students have access to work experience opportunities. This year, due to the pandemic, the school has explored and offered several virtual platforms to provide CEIAG services to students successfully.

Kingsdale is committed to Quality in Careers Standards Award.
