Teachers

Alongside parents and other family members, teachers have the greatest influence on the career decisions of students. It is therefore crucial that we understand the current world of work and help show students the opportunities our subjects can move them towards. To do this, we recommend you use the following resources.

Kudos

The school pays for the Kudos Careers Service. This is a website with up-to-date careers information, you can search your subject which will give you a list of the different careers your subject can open up for students.

Useful links

If you wish to bring your subject to life, we would recommend the following websites.

Icould website https://icould.com/teaching-resources/  The site provides a range of teaching activities for teachers to use to help students learn about what careers are recommended for studying their subject. The careers related videos that can make excellent discussion points.

Careers Box – https://www.careersbox.co.uk/ – Videos relating to different careers.

Access Policy

If you are a further education, higher education or training body, please find our access policy here. The school has a Careers Programme, built upon the CDI and Gatsby Benchmarks. If you are interested in accessing our students, please contact the school via email enquiries@thomasadams.net. Please note, we may refuse providers access on the grounds that another provider, with good links with the school has already been invited in to talk about a specific type of qualification or option. It would be felt that to invite a similar provider in, is a duplication of information about the different courses and qualification options available. Students are directed to look at specific providers in other ways, such as college open evenings, taster events and prospectuses freely available for students to access in school. Students can also meet and discuss with an independent Careers Adviser. As such if we refuse, we are more than happy to have information about your organisation which we can distribute to students.

Enterprise Partnerships

The school is always looking for companies who through a mutually beneficial partnership can provide students with opportunities and we can recommend our school leavers. If you would be interested in such a partnership, please email the school enquiries@thomasadams.net
