Higher Education and Careers

The Nairobi Academy Careers Counselling Department incorporates a framework that focuses the student’s attention on recognising and creating opportunities to make informed career choices by defining their career goals in an annual career action plan. In each year of their career education program, students develop a career action plan that reflects their increased learning, identifies future actions and builds on previous planning.

The Careers’ Action Plan is based on the Key Stages. The Careers’ Head works in close collaboration with the Year Group Coordinators of each key stage and the Form Tutors in each Form Group to provide concerted support to all students.

The students are introduced to career activities in a fun and stimulating way. They get the opportunity to:

  • Explore on Different Careers
  • Learn about Effective Time Usage
  • Simulate a Workplace Environment
  • Chart a Career Path
  • Create a Profile
  • Set Academic Goals
  • Choose IGCSE options in Year 9

The focus here will be students confirming and managing their career action plan. They need to ensure that it reflects their current personal profile, including skills, abilities, attitudes and academic performance. In Year 10, students are taken through:

  • Building their skill set
  • A week of Work Experience.

As they move on to Yr 11, the focus shifts to:

  • Effective Study Habits
  • Choosing A Level Subjects
  • Career Pathways

Students at this stage will need to tailor their Careers’ Action Plan to their needs and prepare themselves for tertiary learning. We offer a variety of programs to ensure the success of each student. This includes:

  • Exposure to Career and University Fairs
  • Training on Writing Personal Statements
  • Personal Branding
  • Reinforcing the Key Competencies needed in the 21st Century

Through the Careers’ Action Plan, students are assured to emerge as a success: having acquired the necessary attributes needed for tertiary education and the world of work.
