Benchmark 4: Linking curriculum to careers
Careers education is part of the curriculum in PSHE lessons and makes links between the curriculum and real world career paths.

Benchmark 5: Encounters with employers & employees
All our pupils have encounters with employers and employees leading to a better understanding of the workplace and potential career paths. Just one example of this at Lampton is our “Girls Can Do Day” for pupils in Year 10 in which they get to have meaningful interactions with over 40 employers or employees. Please refer to the Careers Programme for more details of the other opportunities for Lampton pupils.
Benchmark 6: Experiences of workplaces
We strive to give all pupils the opportunity to experience the workplace environment to understand the context in which they could one day be working. We are making progress towards all pupils having at least one experience by the end of year 11. Year 12 and 13 have such opportunities. Please see the careers programme for further details.
