Careers – Teachers

Contributing to CEIAG in school and in your subject areas

The world of work is changing at an increasingly fast rate and with this comes a greater demand on all of us to support young people in making a successful transition from education to employment. Helping students identify and choose career opportunities that are right for them involves us all.

We work together to ensure Philips High School are:

  • Raising aspirations and increasing motivation – helping our students to identify educational and occupational goals
  • Understanding the relevance of knowledge and skills learnt in different subjects to future opportunities in learning and working
  • Developing skills for effective learning – reviewing achievements, setting targets, planning and taking action
  • Improving literacy – developing information and communication skills
  • Reducing levels of NEET (not in employment, education or training)
  • Providing access to information on the full range of education and training options available
  • Supporting and encouraging progression to the next level of education or employment

Why the Gatsby Benchmarks are important

The Gatsby Benchmarks have a key role in:

  • raising young people’s aspirations and promoting access to all career pathways
  • enabling all young people to develop the skills and outlook they need to achieve career wellbeing, including adaptability and resilience
  • underpinning the Department for Education guidance to schools on meeting their statutory responsibility for careers guidance.

Curriculum Maps

If you need any support or further assistance when updating your curriculum maps for 2019-20 to demonstrate how your subject area incorporates elements of the Gatsby Benchmarks please see the careers team.

Tracking students

Student involvement in CEIAG events and activities are tracked throughout all year groups.

Teachers are therefore requested to keep the Careers Team regularly informed of the following:

  • Names of students involved in CEIAG events or activities within your subject areas that meet any of the benchmarks (this can be recorded on the trips Spreadsheet (K:\TRIPS & Extra Curriculum)
  • Date of the event/activity/visit
  • A brief description/explanation of how students have been involved in activities that meet any of the benchmarks and their impacts

Any available feedback from students/staff is also extremely valuable.
