Careers

careersCareers at Dartford Science & Technology College

At DSTC we are committed to providing students with access to impartial careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) to help them make the right choices and develop skills to manage their future careers.  Raising the participation means the students now need to remain in a form of education or training until at least 18 years old. This provides students with the opportunity to acquire a range of employability skills and time to consider various options for the future.

CXK

DSTC recognises the importance of CEIAG for all students. All students from years 7 to 11 receive careers education, information and advice as part of the curriculum through enrichment activities (see DSTC’s Careers Calendar … link to page 4) and CEIAG is embedded in lessons across their other subjects. They are supported by their form tutors, subject teachers and Sixth Form Mentors. Students are also encouraged to develop their own understanding of the world of work through interaction with employers, universities, apprenticeship providers and alumni to develop employability skills.

Additionally students in Years 10 to 13 have access to external and impartial careers advice through Connextions (CXK), who visit the College every week to give 1-1 careers interviews for students. For a careers interview please email kwesi.bekoe@dstc.kent.sch.uk.

Students can also access a wide range of careers resources from Future Mag the Library page here.
