The learning experience at Camphill Wakefield focuses on building vocational and employment skills, and to complement this our Careers Provision supports all students to engage with and explore their future pathways. This includes: embedded Careers Education; a Careers Information hub; support to access Advice and Guidance; and high-quality work placements for students who access our award winning ACE programme.
Our full careers provision document can be found here.
Careers Education and Information – what students can expect:
As part of each Learning Pathway, tutors will provide opportunities to focus on career progression. Students will find out about employment activities related to their chosen Pathway, and how to access these. Careers Education will also include Employer Encounters as part of the curriculum delivery, where students will either visit business premises, or take part in visits from local employers to their sessions. Each Core Group will engage with the planning for Employer Encounters, and tutors will link core learning to future career options, including signposting for access routes and pathways into employment.
Beyond Employment, the other Preparing for Adulthood Pathways will feature across the Careers Education and Information, ensuring that students with aspirations relating to the Independent Living, Friends Relationships and Community, and Good Health pathways, also receive good quality information about future opportunities.
Camphill Wakefield is currently developing a Careers Resource Hub, where students can find information about future career opportunities and options. This Hub will be run by the Careers Team and the ACE Team.
The Careers Calendar details the range of activities on offer to students.
