The National Quality in Careers Standard
In 2018, the School was recognised for its outstanding careers work and awarded The National Quality in Careers Standard for Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG). The Quality in Careers Standard is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their life after school.
Inspiring Yorkshire and the Humber
Curious about the main sectors that offer employment in our local area? The website below shows the prominent work sectors within Yorkshire – and shows which ones are expected to grow. This can be used to help your son see if the industry he is interested in offers a good chance of employment locally. This should never be the sole reason for your son choosing to pursue a profession as many things can change, but it can be part of the information used to help finalise decisions. The most important section is the ‘skills demand’ tab which shows the skills young people should concentrate on developing to have the best chance of applying for competitive positions, valuable regardless of chosen pathway as they are transferable.
Information for industries that are expected to grow within the Yorkshire and Humber area can be found in this booklet ‘Shape Your Future…’. As well as local companies it also states which subjects are useful for getting into certain industries. If you or your son have any queries about this information or want more personalised guidance for entry routes please contact our Careers Coordinator, Mrs Rose via the school office or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
