Careers Advice and Guidance

Careers at NTC

Supporting our students on the next stage of their personal and educational journey is central to what we aim to achieve at Northfleet Technology College, with the quality of our provision being recognised by the school holding the Investors in Careers kite mark.

Our Vision

There are 8 Gatsby Benchmarks that we as a school aim to fulfil, including; A Stable Career Programme from Year 7-14, developing student understanding in Labour Market Information, Addressing the Needs of All, Learning Careers throughout the Curriculum, Encountering Potential Employers, Ascertaining Work Experience, giving students the opportunity to meet with both Further and Higher Education personnel and Personal Guidance.

No matter what point students are at on their road to their future career, we have a team of staff there to support and guide them forward with a range of advice and experiences.

Careers Interviews

All students will have access to a Careers Interview during their time at NTC. We have funding for an external professional who comes in and supports students with their next steps. Helping signpost students into the correct educational settings for the career pathway they have chosen. If students feel they will benefit from a second Careers Interview this can be conducted, please email Ms Karnovski or Mr Childs if you or your son feel this is required.

 

Work Experience

Students at NTC have the opportunity in Year 10 to undertake Work Experience. Students can choose to take part in 5 days of Work Experience over a three-month period, to help support them in deciding their future career pathway. In KS5 students are encouraged to take part in longer Work Experience placements that will be honed in on an area they feel they would like to seek employment in or a sector that they will be continuing to develop knowledge in when they move on to their Post 18 choices.

Students are expected to source Work Experience themselves but if students are finding it difficult to ascertain any Experience then please speak to Ms Setters in the first instance.
