Careers Education at Little Ilford School is aspirational for all students. We want all students to work towards a fulfilling professional life. Currently 97.7% of our students continue in education or training after leaving Year 11. Students are made aware of career pathways, employment opportunities, further training including degree courses and other options such as apprenticeships. Providers are invited into school to discuss their education or training offer. This complies with the legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997 (Baker Clause). Students get the opportunity to go out on various aspirational school trips to universities and specialist colleges. At Little Ilford School we have developed excellent links with businesses and regularly have guest speakers delivering specialist talks to our students.
The school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme using a variety of methods including:
- student voice
- analysis of destinations
The school's published careers programme is reviewed annually in October. The official NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) data is updated annually in March .
