Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

 

Here at The King’s we are committed to providing a world class careers programme which is guided by the Gatsby benchmarks. We strive towards meeting all elements of the benchmarks, providing our students with a range of aspirational activities, employer encounters, opportunities to develop employability skills and advice and guidance in relation to their future pathways. We are very fortunate that these opportunities are provided both in school and out of school by our teaching staff, local and national employers/employees, University representatives and other further and higher education volunteers.

 

There are 3 main objectives which run through the Careers Education Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG) programme for all year groups at The Kingʼs School:

  • Self-Development: For students to be able to understand themselves and the influences upon them
  • Career Exploration: For students to be able to investigate opportunities in learning and work
  • Career Management: For students to be able to make and adjust plans to manage change and transition

 

Miss Kaminskas is our Careers Leader and oversees the careers programme. She can be contacted on hkaminskas@thekings.staffs.sch.uk

 

What are the Gatsby Benchmarks?

The Gatsby Benchmarks are a framework of 8 guidelines that define the best careers provision in secondary schools. For more information, take a look at this guide.

The King’s CEIAG programme

See below a link to our initial CEIAG programme for the 2020/21 academic year outlining the various activities, opportunities and experiences our students are provided with. This programme is updated on a half termly basis with further activities.

To continue to assist our students with their future study and career options we have partnered with Unifrog which is the complete destinations platform. This is a one-stop-shop for students across KS3, KS4 and KS5 regardless of their interests or academic ability. It is the only place where students can compare every university course, apprenticeship and FE course in the UK as well as universities in 30 other countries across the world. This is alongside getting access to labour market information and advice on careers and subjects for all routes. Unifrog also helps students to record and evidence their key activities & competencies and prepare their CVs and personal statements alongside the teacher reference, CEIAG interactions recording and destination tracking tools, all in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks.
