We believe that effective career guidance contributes to raising aspirations, improving motivation, and overcoming barriers to success. Newland School for Girls is committed to delivering high-quality CEIAG which empowers pupils to make informed career decisions. Our goal is to equip our pupils with the necessary skills to adapt to an ever-changing economic climate, inspiring them to become life-long career learners. This is achieved through a comprehensive programme of activities that spans Year 7 through Year 11, and beyond, and is based on the nationally recognised Gatsby Benchmarks.
Newland Careers Programme 2020-2021
Our careers programme consists of; school based activities led by internal staff, events involving external partners (such as colleges, alumni, training providers, employers, and universities) and external visits. Due to the current circumstances relating to the Covid-19 pandemic we have unfortunately had to postpone some of our planned activities for the autumn term (red). Some activities such as careers assemblies and open events planned for autumn term have been moved to virtual events where possible, similarly planned activities for the spring term are currently under review and where possible we are developing virtual alternatives (amber). Activities led by internal staff are able to go ahead as planned, this is also the case for one to one guidance appointments which are being delivered virtually (green).
We will continue to monitor the ever changing situation and amend our provision accordingly closer to the Spring / Summer Terms.
Due to the level of planning and organisation required to deliver a successful work experience programme, we are doubtful that we will be able to proceed with work experience in the summer term, we are therefore looking at virtual alternatives to be delivered in Spring.

How we measure and assess the impact of the Careers Programme on pupils
We regularly request feedback from parents, pupils, local further education and apprenticeship providers and employers to ensure that we are continually improving our careers programme, which is monitored monthly and updated annually. Teaching staff are involved in the delivery of the careers programme and also provide support on careers off timetable days ensuring that they are able to make the link between curriculum subjects and careers.
In year 11 all our pupils complete a “What Next” proforma to inform us of their intended destination. Using the information we gather, we work closely with Connexions to provide additional targeted support to pupils. In addition to this, the data enables us to monitor our pupil destinations and the number of students who progress into various post-16 opportunities. Connexions also provide follow-up information, which serves to monitor drop-out rates from destinations. These factors are taken into consideration when reviewing the CEIAG programme.
