Highlands School, Enfield

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Highlands seeks to raise aspirations and provides students with the knowledge and experience to make informed decisions for their future choices in the work place, higher education or training.

We therefore encourage students to plan early and broadly for their own future and we provide support in considering all available options that match their interests and skills.

We aim to support pupils and parents/carers by providing timely advice and guidance right the way across Years 7-13. This support is further enhanced by Highland’s strong relationships with Careers Advisers, Employers, Training providers, Colleges and Universities.

CAREERS PROGRAMME

As an education establishment we ensure we use the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks as a foundation when planning our Careers Strategy. The effectiveness of our provision is inspected and audited by the Careers and Enterprise Company using the Compass Careers Benchmark Tool. This tool is used by schools and colleges in England to support the analysis and evaluation of careers activity against the eight benchmarks of best practice. The Careers and Enterprise Company coordinate the Audit deadlines. This ensures the development of our careers strategy is ongoing to ensure best practice. In line with the recommendations set out in Gatsby Benchmark 1, we as a school plan to review the published information on an annual basis, inviting feedback from key audiences.

2020-21 Career Programme under review – details will be displayed here shortly.

PROVIDER ACCESS STATEMENT

This statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.  This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

 

EXPERIENCES OF THE WORKPLACE 

We will endeavour to provide our pupils with at least one experience of a workplace through visits and work shadowing to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.

Year 12 students undertake a one week work experience placement in the summer term. We encourage students to find an appropriate placement, but we also have support from the London Borough of Enfield Work Experience Team. This meaningful experience will support their future career choices and will prove useful for both University and Apprenticeship applications, particularly for professional or vocational degree programmes.

SIXTH FORM

Students in our Sixth Form are very well supported as they make their applications to University, apply for Higher Level Apprenticeships or other non-University post 18 pathways.
