World of Work
At King’s Leadership Academy, we place great emphasis on each of our students having a personal development programme that ensures that they, “the academic skills, intellectual habits, qualities of character and leadership traits necessary to succeed at all levels and become successful citizens in tomorrow’s world”. This starts as soon as they arrive in Year 7 and builds significantly through Year 8-13. Our careers programme is designed to enable students to feel some sense of responsibility and achievement in determining and recognising not only their strengths and weaknesses, but also their full potential.
The World of Work programme at King’s is measured against the Gatsby Benchmark through the use of: regular student surveys; NEETS and destination information.

“Every young person needs high-quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future. Good career guidance is a necessity for delivering technical education reforms and is a vehicle for social justice: those young people without social capital or home support suffer most from poor career guidance”. – www.gatsby.org
