Careers Guidance Adviser (Prospects/Shaw Trust) – Miss Disha Dansingani

As a fully qualified ( Level 7) Careers Advisor , with over 25 years of experience working with young  people in a range of settings including secondary schools, colleges and local community settings within the London Boroughs of Brent and Harrow. I am passionate about young people recognising and living their potential. I truly believe that all young people should have access to impartial careers information, advice and guidance (IAG) and are empowered  to make informed decisions for their future.

We are all living in an increasingly transient  world, therefore up to date, relevant, realistic and effective careers information, advice and guidance has never been more important to help Young People navigate their way through their different options. I believe that all young people have the right to reach their full potential and the contribution that I can make towards their life chances and goals is always a pleasure, honour and a privilege.

At JFS I  provide independent and impartial careers guidance to students from Year 9 to Year 13, I can help you to consider your options, research your ideas in a safe environment and encourage you to become more self-aware of your own skills and personal qualities. You can also be provided with practical support including writing a CV, completing application forms, interview techniques and improving resilience.


Labour Market Information (LMI)

At JFS, we aim to provide careers support which will inform students’ choices at each key stage. It is important that all students are fully supported and guided through the process of planning their futures. We offer an extensive programme at each year, providing insight into careers and vocations available, as well support needed for students enquiring of post-18 pathways in employment and apprenticeships. Almost all of our students go to university, with a many enrolling into Russell Group universities. At JFS, we provide our pupils with support to develop the knowledge and skills to understand themselves, research available opportunities, make decisions, and successfully move to the next stage in their education. The programme is delivered through PSHCE, special events and enrichment programmes, trips and visits, assemblies, curriculum lessons and form time.

The careers department has signed up to a number of virtual services including Unifrog and Morrisby Testing, allowing pupils to research more about career choices of interest, university courses and universities across the world. We also review students’ subject choices and career intentions, mapping these continuously through each pupils’ school journey.

JFS staff work together to implement the new careers strategies through the eight Gatsby benchmarks:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance
