de Stafford School is committed to providing students with careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) throughout their school lives.

The careers programme includes careers education within Citizenship lessons, career guidance activities group work and individual interviews, work-related learning and organised events including mock interviews, careers support days and external careers fairs.

Year 7 students will as part of their PHSE and Citizenship programme will work through a number of lessons where they consider their future job and career prospects. They will all also have the opportunity to attend a whole school careers fair .

Year 8 students will take part in a discovery day at Surrey University. A focused group will also take part in “Raising Aspirations” workshops to help them link their school work with their future life and career aspirations. They will attend an Options Evening, attended by local education advisors, to help them decide upon their GCSE courses. Lastly, all Year 8 students will be able to attend the whole school Careers Fair.

Year 9 students will be given a Careers Afternoon that focusses solely on thinking about What's Next? They will meet a wide variety of leaders in local businesses and colleges and will come away inspired with new ideas and with a clearer concept of what to do next. A focused group will also take part in “Raising Aspirations” workshops to help them link their school work with their future life and career aspirations. Finally, the all will be able to attend the whole school Careers Fair.

Year 10 students are given the opportunity to experience a Business and Enterprise day, the purpose of this day is to prepare students for work experience by involving them in an ‘Apprentice’ / ‘Dragon’s den’ style activity. During this day they will get the chance to learn many aspects of business, including buying, marketing and finance. The day will also give students the opportunity to apply skills and develop knowledge in a ‘real life’ situation. Students will be working in teams, given a brief and a budget and will spend the morning developing their ideas. In the afternoon they will present these ideas to a panel of judges who will decide whether they will ‘invest’ in their business. All students will have a formal interview with an employer throughout the day which will last about 10 minutes. To prepare properly for this, they will prepare a professional CV during SAM time in school.

Year 10 and 11 students will have a program of Careers Guidance delivered by a specialist careers service provider, Innervate, which includes careers questionnaires, and one-to-one careers interviews for all pupils to help them to decide what to do next.

Year 11 students will also receive a series of assemblies delivered by experts in further education, apprenticeships and higher education.
