Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance Entitlement Statement

Students at Newland School for Girls will receive Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to prepare them for the key transition points in Year 9 and Year 11 and as an important part of preparation for their future beyond school. Pupils will have access to impartial careers information, advice and guidance from Year 7 supported by a planned programme of careers education and events across the curriculum.

In Year 7 students are introduced to careers through an off timetable day as part of National Careers week. Year 8s have the opportunity to take part in an enterprise and business day. Support for student option choices is in Year 8. Students have an options assembly, there is a parent information event and students are each given an interview with a member of staff to discuss their choices.

In Year 10 all students have the opportunity to participate in Work Experience. Pupils have support from school in finding a work placement. Preparation for work experience includes a health and safety at work session. Each pupil taking up a work experience placement is issued with a journal. In Year 10 students will also visit local colleges on taster days.

In Year 11 there are assembly presentations by local post 16 providers. Students are seen in groups and individually to discuss their career choices and the routes open to them. Support is available in making applications through the Logonmoveon website.

There are a range of visits organised through the careers department that pupils across the year groups can participate in. The Careers Coordinator is available at lunchtime for any pupil requesting careers information or advice.

SEN and vulnerable students will have additional support to prepare them for their Year 9 and Post16 transitional point choices including; meetings with school staff, specialist careers advisors and meetings with parents.
