Careers at Endeavour

At Endeavour, we are passionate about ensuring we provide our students with as much careers guidance as possible to enable them to make excellent decisions for bright futures.

We offer high quality, impartial careers guidance that helps pupils to make informed choices about which courses suit their academic needs and aspirations. The academy is committed to Careers Education as a vital means of giving all students the skills, knowledge and understanding to manage their own lifelong learning and career development.

Careers education will prepare all students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of education, training and employment and also the challenges of adult life. Careers Education will both compliment and integrate within our PSHE Curriculum and form time programme.

Information, Advice and Guidance

Making use of our hall, we host a range of lunch time drop in sessions and ‘Advice and a Slice’ sessions. A range of professionals have visited our students since we introduced this. In PSHE lessons and during form time, students complete a range of careers-focused learning activities to help them to make excellent choices. Students are also expected to record their achievements in their Raising Achievement Folders. They are given these in Year 7 and are expected to build on them throughout their time at Endeavour, building their portfolio as they go through the academy.

All students are welcome to have a one-to-one careers sessions with our Careers Lead which are available on request from Mrs Fosker. Students may email Mrs Fosker v.fosker@oeacademy.co.uk with any questions or to request an appointment.

All enquiries relating to Careers, work experience or Post-16 advice, may be directed to Mrs V. Fosker, Careers Leader, on 01473 464 545 or via email to v.fosker@oeacademy.co.uk.

Careerometer

The Careerometer can be used to gain and compare key information about occupations and careers based in the UK that students may want to pursue in their future. This will display information such as Weekly Pay, Annual Pay, Hourly Pay, Hours per Week, the workforce growth and the percentage of the workforce that is projected to retire.
