More about the GDST

The Belvedere Academy

Employers

In order to support our vision of helping our students find their purpose, we need the support of both the public and private sectors. The careers programme is the bridge between education and employment. Therefore our students need to understand what skills and qualifications are required to be successful in the workplace.

There are a number of ways you can engage with us at Belvedere Academy. 

For more information or to arrange a meeting please contact Sarah Carroll, Careers Leader s.carroll@belvedereacademy.net

Careers Fair – October/November2020

Workshops – throughout the year

In school Talks

Careers Talks are designed to inspire and inform groups of either 20 students in a lesson, or a whole school year via an assembly

They would cover the presenter’s:

1. Qualifications.

2. Good and bad parts of their job.

3. Pay and Benefits.

4. Their opinion on what employers want from young people

Careers Visits

We would like smaller groups students in Year 10 and 11 who are interested in a specific career path to be able to visit your place of work with a member of our teaching staff. The purpose is to inspire and expose students to different working environments

Work Experience

Every Year 12  student has to complete 5 days of experience.  In 2020 this will be in the week of 22nd June.

Work Experience 2021

We will be looking for work experience placements for our Year 12 pupils.  All pupils are encouraged to complete a week of work experience, in order to help them develop knowledge of the workplace and gain an understanding of the skills employers are looking for. 

 

All pupils will be in Year 12, and aged 16 and over.  

Placements usually run from Monday -Friday, approximately 9-5, however, you may wish to make amendments to these times, in discussion with the pupil.

 If you would be able to offer one or more placements, please let us know by replying to BelCareers@belvedereacademy.net.  It would be helpful to have a bit of information about your company, and what the placement could entail, alongside any restrictions or requirements you may have.

 We will internally advertise the placements to our pupils and ask them to 'apply' for the placements.  This will be via a letter explaining why they believe they are suitable for the placement and how they think the placement will be beneficial.

It is important for our students to gain access to quality work placements. We understand the impact work experience can have in supporting their UCAS or applications for employment. If you could offer a placement please contact Sarah Carroll to arrange.
