Careers Guidance

A good careers education programme is vital for our students to be inspired, raise their aspirations, work hard and make the most of opportunities available to them.  At Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey, our careers programme has been designed to give our students the key transferable skills, knowledge and attributes that are important in their pathway planning and the world of work.

To help us do this, we link our careers guidance to the Gatsby Benchmarks. To view our Careers Programme, please see link below.

Our Careers pages are to provide information to students, parents/carers and teachers.

For further information on our careers programme please contact our Sixth Form Team.

Evaluation of our careers plan

We review our Career Guidance programme every academic year with appropriate changes made in conjunction with DfE Guidance as well as student feedback and destination data.

We also use the Compass tool – an on-line self-evaluation tool to assess how our careers support compares against the Gatsby Benchmarks and the national average.  We also work with The Careers and Enterprise Company.
