Careers Education, Information & Guidance at Ebor Academy Filey

Rationale

Ebor Academy Filey is committed to providing our students with a planned programme of activities to equip them with the necessary information and experiences to make appropriate choices with regards future study and employment.

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Pupil entitlement

All pupils in years 8-13 are entitled:

  • to find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point;
  • to hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events;
  • to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.


Ebor Academy Filey is committed to providing our students with a planned programme of activities to equip them with the necessary information and experiences to make appropriate choices with regards future study and employment.

Following the publication of the DfE Statutory Careers Guidance (January 2018) we have worked with our partners in HE, FE and NYBEP (North Yorkshire Business & Education Partnership) to further improve and broaden the range of experiences available to our students. In the May 2018 Ofsted report, inspectors stated “Pupils value the advice and guidance they receive in relation to future career opportunities and further education. They say that, when the time comes to make decisions regarding GCSE subject choices or post-16 education, they are well prepared because teachers have provided astute advice and guidance.”

Implementation

Outlined below, is our current careers programme, which shows the opportunities and experiences provided for our students in each academic year and term. In addition to the programme outlined below, CEIAG is also delivered as part of the PSHE programme by form tutors. From September 2018, the Academy designated Careers Leader is Mr John Chalk. Our statutory duty to give independent and impartial careers advice is provided by Careers Adviser, Mrs Rosemary Ellis, whose profile is here
