CEIAG – Careers Education. Information, Advice and Guidance
At Hebburn Comprehensive, we aim to embed ambition and raise aspirations in all of our young people, so they have the very best life chances. Our careers programme plays an extremely important role in ensuring that pupils receive high-quality, impartial advice and guidance, to enable them to make informed choices about post-16 progression routes and future careers.
In school, we have designed a comprehensive careers programme that will allow pupils to develop the essential skills to be successful in the world of work. Our careers programme is designed to provide as many interactions with post-16 provider and employers as possible. This includes teacher-led activities during form period, work experience in year 10 and through engagement with local employers and other professionals. We are also involved in the ASK programme which allows us to work closely with the National Apprenticeship Service.
When designing the Careers programme, we have taken into consideration all of the Gatsby Benchmarks, to ensure quality of provision.
These benchmarks include:
- A good stable careers programme
- Learning from career and labour market information
- Addressing the needs of each individual pupil
- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounters with employers and employees
- Experiences of workplaces
- Encounters with further and higher education
- Personal guidance
