Careers Programme Information
Nexus School provides a relevant and enriching curriculum, which meets the differing needs and career requirements of our students. Students have a variety of opportunities to gain information, advice and guidance relating to their future destinations.
In class students learn about work and life as part of their lessons. Functional English, mathematics and ICT not only develop skills that will help them negotiate work, home and leisure activities and enrich their life experiences but also incorporate learning about options that they might consider in their future lives.
Enterprise lessons are delivered to focus on helping students to develop entrepreneurial, life and employment skills to prepare them for life beyond school. Learning can be more enjoyable when embedded in real-life examples and when individuals are given the opportunity to take ownership of their own success.
The Rotary Club come into Nexus and set up a real life interview practice and guide the pupils to improve their interview skills.
The school is developing its high quality work experiences in real work settings in line with aspirations and vocational pathways and we are an advocate for the recognition of the attributes that SEN students bring to the workplace with local employers.
Each student has a transitional outcome identified in their EHCP which is linked to employment for those who will be able to work. These outcomes are reviewed regularly by the students, staff and parents. Students have the opportunity to express their employment aspiration (where appropriate) within Section A of their EHCP plan.
Students within Nexus currently attend, Bore Place, Hadlow agricultural College and Mid Kent College where they are able to access a range of course and activities.
Our pupils are able to demonstrate their progress through the accreditation that they gain and through photographic evidence of their successes.
