Careers

At King Ecgbert School we believe all students should be provided with personalised careers guidance which will allow them to make informed choices about which courses suit their academic needs and aspirations. This will ensure they are suitably prepared for the next stage in their education, training or employment and have attained relevant qualifications. Our Careers provision aims to ensure our students leave King Ecgbert School on a career path that will lead to a bright and prosperous future.

Our current main priority is to minimise the impact of COVID 19 on our students' opportunities to learn about the world of work and the ability to make informed choices at key transition stages.

We are in the process of updating our Careers Programme to guide us through the current circumstances and still be able to work towards meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks.

Mr Fennell is our Careers Leader and co-ordinates all careers-based provision within school and can be contacted directly on pfennell@ecgbert.sheffield.sch.uk 

To measure the impact of our careers provision our Careers Leader completes The Careers and Enterprise Company's (CEC) Compass Plus online self-assessment tool every term and works alongside the CEC's Enterprise Adviser Network to help raise the standard of our provision.

Useful websites:

Sheffield Progress will be used by Y11 students to explore post-16 courses and submit online applications to providers. The site can be accessed to research post-16 courses without needing to log-in by clicking on the 'Courses' tab.

This website is a great resource to access and has lots of very useful information and guidance on the 'Corona Virus: keeping your career planning on track' page. It also provides a wealth of easy-to-access information on all matters relating to both post 16 and 18 transition and longer-term career aspirations.

An excellent website that can be used to explore jobs and careers in a wide range of sectors.

Although focused more on post-18 options, this is an incredibly useful site that provides a wide range of information in a very user-friendly format.

A useful and informative website providing information on a wide range of jobs and careers.

A really useful website that allows you to explore the links between choices at Post 16 and Post 18.

The National Careers Service have provided a snapshot of the most current Labour Market Information (LMI) in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) - please see document below.
