Careers

 

Understanding students’ career choices and aspirations is paramount to their success at school and also in preparing them for their future lives.

 

Therefore, the information on this page is relevant to students/parents/carers, employees and staff.Pupils at Haringey Learning Partnership are encouraged to explore a wide range of career choices through our information and guidance programme.  

We aim to prepare our students for future opportunities in the world of study and ultimately their working life. Students gain knowledge and develop skills in employability awareness.

Key Stage 3 students have the opportunity to attend our very own Careers Fair, which opens up a whole new window of different employment opportunities available to them, with information on apprenticeships, college courses, university prospects and employment. KS3 students also have a term of PSHE lessons focused on careers where they can look into career jobs information and advice, possible job ideas, matching their skills and qualities to two career options. They also get the chance to talk to the Careers Advisor for personalised advice and guidance.

Key Stage 4 students have in-house careers guidance in the form of individual and group meetings on post 16 pathways, apprenticeships and college courses.  KS4 students also attend the careers fair and this has supported their option choices and widened their options for post 16. Past students have pursued a variety of post 16 options including; apprenticeships, sixth form study, college courses and jobs with training. 

 

Parents/Carers

 At Haringey Learning Partnership, we work closely with parents and carers to support their children to make informed career choices. Parents and carers are encouraged to attend the careers events and we always ensure that we provide translators for these events. Parents and carers are always welcome to contact the Careers Leader, Ms Edwards Dominique.edwards@haringey.gov.uk to seek advice and ask any questions they might have regarding careers pathways.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The CEIAG team meet on a regular basis to develop, monitor and evaluate CEAIG across the school.

Haringey Learning Partnership’s progress towards achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks is evaluated using the online Compass tool (as recommended in Careers guidance and access for education and training providers Jan 2018).  This is carried out on an annual basis by the Careers Leader.  The CEIAG development plan is based upon the outcomes of the Compass audit. 

Provision is also monitored through regular feedback from students, parents/carers, staff, governors and our partners.  This feedback is collected through questionnaires and forms at the end of each year.  This is analysed by the Careers Leader with actions fed back to staff.  Key action points are also included in the annual CEIAG development plan. 

External provision is monitored and evaluated through the school’s quality assurance procedures including observations, student/staff/parents & carers feedback at the end of each event. This is analysed by the Careers Leader with actions fed back to staff via CEIAG team meetings.  Key action points are also included in the annual CEIAG development plan.

The effectiveness of our career’s guidance will be reflected in the higher numbers of students progressing to positive destinations such as apprenticeships, technical routes, sixth form colleges, further education colleges, or employment.  Destination data is used to assess how successfully students make the transition into the next stage of education or training, or into employment and to inform future CEIAG provision.  This is analysed by the Careers Leader with key trends and actions fed back to Governors.  A designated governor has responsibility for overseeing the quality of careers guidance.

The CEIAG policy is reviewed on an annual basis by the Careers Leader.  This is ratified by the Executive Headteacher and Governors.
