Infiniti School aims to:
ensure that all students at the school from Y7 to Y12 receive a stable careers programme (below)
ensure all students learn from information provided by the career and labour market
link the curriculum learning to careers learning - linking subjects to careers
provide students with a series of encounters with employers and employees, visitors and interactive speakers, presentations and activities
provide students with experiences of the workplace through carefully planned work experience and volunteering experiences
ensure that students have a series of encounters with further and higher education through trips and information sessions
provide each student with the opportunity to receive personal guidance one to one from the careers leader
The school will base its careers provision around the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Infiniti School believes that good CEIAG connects learning to the future. It motivates young people by giving them a clearer idea of the routes to jobs and careers that they will find engaging and rewarding. Good CEIAG widens students’ horizons, challenges stereotypes and raises aspirations. It provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to the next stage of their life. This supports social mobility by improving opportunities for all young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special educational needs and disabilities.
