Overview

Raising Aspirations (including careers guidance) & Enrichment

At Ark Elvin, every student should leave confident, articulate and culturally aware being able to pursue careers they are passionate about, contribute to society and live happy healthy and fulfilled lives. To achieve our mission, pupils must understand the opportunities that a school and university education will afford them in terms of careers and quality of life. As such, we need to ensure that all pupils are taught the knowledge of pathways available to them at post-16. In addition to offering pupils tailored guidance, advice, support and alongside experiences of work and university that will allow them to make informed choices about their future.

Moreover, pupils are explicitly taught the character traits, habits and routines that will enable them to become successful at home and in the workplace as well as develop a refined sense of self, both as an individual and as part of a community through trips, visits, talks and enrichment. At Ark Elvin, we are committed to implementing the Gatsby benchmarks to structure our careers & enrichment programme and measure our success. As part of our commitment to informing our students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational providers to speak to students.
