A detailed and highly effective careers programme runs from Years 7 to 11. It includes a series of whole-day 'Aspiration' events offered with the help of external providers. The school benefits form strong links with local charities and key sponsors. Disadvantaged pupils take part in innovative initiatives aimed at raising aspirations. As well as visiting universities, pupils have the chance to work with high-profile companies.
Careers education plays a vital part in supporting young people to choose an appropriate post-16 pathway, which reflects their interests, talents, abilities and needs. A stable careers programme helps young people to understand the wider context of their learning and raises aspirations.
Oasis Academy Brislington provides students with a progressive careers programme, which enables students to plan and manage their careers effectively. We are committed to provide all students with a programme that is guided by the Gatsby Benchmarks and follows the statutory guidance set out in the ”Careers strategy: making the most of everyone’s skills and talents”. The programme offers opportunities to explore a variety of career pathways through assemblies, tutor activities, employability masterclasses, employer visits, workshops, careers fairs and 1:1 impartial and independent careers advice and guidance.
Oasis Academy Brislington uses Grofar as a tool to record each student’s careers activities, yearly careers action plans and skills development. The new Oasis Horizons Project which is being rolled out across all Oasis Academies will support this aspect of our careers strategy even further as all our student have been provided with an iPad. This will help us to monitor and track each student’s careers education journey as well as planning and organising “meaningful” encounters to raise their aspirations.
Oasis Academy Brislington is also committed to guiding students to follow appropriate pathways and gives all students various opportunities to research job sectors and regularly shares information with students and parents, which informs them about growth sectors, LMI and the fast changing world of work.
