The Careers team at Northgate High School is based in a purpose designed suite in the administration block. We support students in making well-informed choices by providing impartial information, advice and guidance about the range of options that are available to students, including apprenticeships, college, employment, sixth form and university. We aid students to make decisions at key transition points and help to prepare them for whatever their next steps might be.
Our school careers plan has been informed by The Gatsby Benchmarks and the DfE’s ‘Careers Guidance and access for education and training providers’ (October 2018). Our school Careers Policy and Strategy details how we ensure that we have a careers system in place that fully meets the needs of our students, connects their learning to the future, widens their horizons, raises aspirations and gives them a clear idea of the routes to jobs and careers.
The Careers programme at Northgate High School aims to develop in all students the knowledge, skills, attitudes and abilities which will enable them to be effective in a variety of adult roles and working life.
In Year 8, Careers is delivered as part of the tutorial and PSHEE programmes. Topics covered include the relationship between school and work, skills and qualifications for the workplace and different career paths.
In Years 9 to 11, Careers is delivered both as part of the tutorial programme and through our Core programme. In Year 9 students undertake a self-analysis, think about employability and consider their future aspirations and options. In Year 10 the focus is on jobs and the application process. In addition, Year 10 students undertake a work experience programme. In Year 11, students are supported in identifying appropriate routes for their life beyond Northgate.
In Years 12 and 13, Careers is delivered through careers lessons, specific guidance sessions, access to workshops and speakers, input by our alumni and through one-to-one support. A number of students also undertake work experience as part of their programme in the Sixth Form.
We also run events to support our young people in planning for their future, such as our Year 9 Options Evening and our Year 11 Pathways evening, to which external providers are invited.
