The Government’s new Careers Strategy: Making the Most of Everyone’s Skills & Talents, launched in December 2017, puts a new emphasis on high quality careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) within schools:
“We want to create a stronger, fairer society in which people from all backgrounds can realise their potential. A thriving careers system, that is accessible to everyone, is at the heart of our focus on social mobility. We must break down the barriers to progress that too many people in our country face today, and give young people the skills to get on in life. Our careers strategy will support everyone, whatever their age, to go as far as their talents will take them and have a rewarding career.” The Rt Hon Anne Milton MP
The Government want:
• all young people to understand the full range of opportunities available to them, to learn from employers about work and the skills that are valued in the workplace and to have first-hand experience of the workplace;
• all young people in secondary school and college to get an excellent programme of advice and guidance that is delivered by individuals with the right skills and experience;
• everyone to get support tailored to their circumstances.
All Saints CE Academy is committed to delivering a Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme which will help all pupils to develop the skills and knowledge they need to make the right choices for their future. By instilling our career guidance principle of ‘Ambition-drives-Outcome’, we broaden pupils’ horizons by increasing knowledge and understanding of career and educational opportunities and so build the confidence to achieve goals that may previously have been thought to be unobtainable.
Our Career Strategy is based on the eight Gatsby Benchmarks for high quality CEIAG:
At All Saints CE Academy, all staff have a responsibility to deliver careers advice and guidance no matter their subject area, role or responsibility. The key staff to contact directly regarding our careers program are as follows:
Careers Leader: Mr D Jennings – Mrjennings@allsaints-cademy.co.uk
Careers Advisor: We are currently advertising for a careers advisor to join the team. Once appointed this person will offer individual careers interviews to pupils, concentrating on Years 9 and 10. The interview will be tailored to the individual pupil who will receive a detailed Careers Action Plan outlining the discussion and next steps.
The careers team receive regular training and updates and is active in local initiatives and networks including the Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC), Southern Universities Network (SUN) and National Careers Service (NCS).
Whether your daughter/son has a clear career plan or is unsure about their future; whether s/he is aiming for sixth form, college, or an apprenticeship, we will make sure they get the guidance and information they need to make their futures happen.
