Careers Enrichment and Engagement

Welcome to Roundhay All-through School Careers Enrichment & Engagement (CEE) Team.

We are committed to giving quality, impartial information, advice and guidance to all students by educating them on future opportunities and potential career paths based on their individual needs.

We encourage students to recognise and embrace their own distinct set of characteristics, skills and knowledge through a variety of interventions and tools.  We aim to ensure students make informed careers choices, researching and exploring different careers sectors, the roles available within and the necessary qualifications required.  Students are given key information and advice around progression routes and apprenticeships as well as Further and Higher Education providers.

We deliver a varied programme of careers education and incorporate this into the curriculum as much as possible.  All activities are designed to develop students self awareness and employability skills whilst enhancing their knowledge of the world of work.

We hold a variety of employer engagement events, workshops and one-to-one interviews throughout the course of the year.

All students will receive information regarding Post 16 and Post 18 options and we encourage them to engage with the START careers platform on a regular basis to support their journey, learn about the current labour market and research progression routes.

We recognise that employer engagement is an area of increasing importance to the overall development of students.  The skills essential for the workforce of the future requires an increased focus on the learning opportunities we make available to our students.

Such engagement can take a variety of forms but typically focuses upon:

  • Developing employability and transferrable skills in response to the demands of the local and global economy.
  • Creating opportunities for enterprise and innovation, through university and employer partnerships.
  • Supporting students to become valuable members of society who are respectful, resilient and ready to learn
