As part of our vision to empower our students to become leaders tomorrow, we aim to assist our students to develop both academically and personally and encourage them to have high aspirations, to maximize the opportunities in front of them and to progress to whatever future they desire.
We implement this through a structured, broad and balanced careers programme that provides Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) and meets the Gatsby benchmarks, in order to assist our students in preparing for college, university and employment.
The Gatsby Benchmarks:
1. A stable careers programme
2. Learning from career and labour market information
3. Addressing the needs of each student
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
We use the above benchmarks to plan, implement and continually review our careers provision, to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our students and their parents/carers.
We facilitate the delivery of impartial information, advice and guidance to allow all pupils to receive advice and guidance on career progression at regular intervals throughout the year. We ensure part of the school’s careers guidance comes from visits from employers and a careers’ fair visit for all pupils and work experience opportunities at Key stage 4. This will include at least one meaningful encounter with an employer each year, starting in Year 7.
We ensure there is explicit linkage of the taught curriculum to careers with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to raise aspirations. We also offer careers’ guidance and development of work-related skills through the PSHEE curriculum. Enrichment and extra-curricular activities also develop and foster enterprise skills.
We are continuously building links with local companies and organisations spanning from manufacturing, voluntary, medical and many more sectors. Throughout the year, prominent and successful individuals from the community and beyond will be invited to the school to inspire our students.
We will monitor the effectiveness and impact of our CEIAG programme by:
