Monkwearmouth Academy, Sunderland

At Monkwearmouth Academy, we aim to equip the students with skills to face the challenges of the world beyond school and to make them aware of the part they can play in the wider community. The Academy’s CEIAG programme (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) exists to prepare students for the choices, changes and transitions affecting their future education, training and employment. The careers programme is concerned with preparation for adult life and with the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills, which have relevance for the future whilst raising aspirations for all our students.

The aims of our careers programme are to:

  • to raise students’ aspirations and to broaden their horizons
  • to inspire and empower students to make informed realistic decisions at key transition points in learning and work
  • to provide good quality independent and impartial careers advice to students which inspires them and motivates them to fulfil their potential
  • to provide advice and guidance which is in the best interests of the student
  • to provide opportunities to work in partnership with employers, training providers, local colleges and others to provide opportunities to inspire students through real-life contact with the world of work
  • to develop enterprise and employability skills including skills for self-employment
  • to support inclusion, challenge stereotyping and promote equality of opportunity

 

At Monkwearmouth, we are working towards meeting the ‘The Gatsby Benchmarks’ as set out by the Department for Education in their statutory guidance. The Gatsby Benchmarks are a key measure of the effectiveness of careers advice.

​The Eight Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Career Guidance are:

Benchmark 1: A Stable Careers Programme

  • Every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by students, parents, teachers, governors and employers.

Benchmark 2: Learning from Career and Labour Market Information

  • Every student and their parents should have access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. They will need the support of an informed adviser to make the best use of available information.

Benchmark 3: Addressing the Needs of Each Student

  • Students have different career guidance needs at different stages. Opportunities for advice and support need to be tailored to the needs of each student. A school’s careers programme should embed equality and diversity considerations throughout.

Benchmark 4: Linking Curriculum Learning to Careers

  • All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of careers paths.

Benchmark 5: Encounters with Employers and Employees

  • Every student should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This can be through a range of enrichment activities including visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.

Benchmark 6: Experiences of Workplaces

  • Every student should have first-hand experience of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing, and/or work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.

Benchmark 7: Encounters with Further and Higher Education

  • All students should understand the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. This includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace.

Benchmark 8: Personal Guidance

Every student should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a careers adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all students but should be timed to meet their individual needs.

For queries relating to careers education or advice and guidance, please contact Miss Simpson the Careers Lead in the chat facility on the right hand side of the video player.
