Careers Programme - Parent Zone
Lydiard Park Academy is committed to the implementation of the recently introduced ‘Gatsby Benchmarks’ which are designed to support pupil knowledge and awareness of career opportunities open to them.
Benchmark 8 - According to the Gatsby Foundation: -
“Every pupil should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a careers adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all pupils but should be timed to meet their individual needs.”
LPA will commit to ensuring every pupil will have at least one such interview by the age of 16.
