Our Commitment

Selston High School is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education for all students in years 7-11.

In a highly competitive employment market choices students make are taking on new levels of complexity. This requires:

A planned programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance that allows students to develop the skills for employability; which develops their knowledge, skills and understanding to make well-informed and realistic decisions about their future in learning and work and which encourages young people to aspire and to make successful transitions and achieve positive progression

Selston High School endeavours to follow the Careers Education framework 7-19 (DCSF 2010) and other relevant guidance from the DCSF, DfE and more recently The Education Bill 2011 which focusses on the following 3 aims:

 

3 main aims of careers education:

• Understand more about yourself - To promote Self Development 

• Look at options – Career Exploration

• Plan for future - Career Management Skills 

 

Selston High School Background & Ethos

At Selston we aim to develop effective and independent learners who will achieve their full potential, within a positive learning environment for all, students and staff. 

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is key to this ethos having embedded links within the Whole School Improvement Plan.  Each student at Selston is supported to develop crucial careers development skills in KS3 that will ensure they are independent, well informed young adults in KS4 that can plan realistically and succeed in organising their own pathways.

 

Raising Aspirations 

The school aims to raise aspirations of all students and sees CEIAG as playing a central role in this through:-

• Dedicated /PSHE/tutor time 

• One-one-one Guidance Interviews

• Careers Awareness raising events/trips/workshops

• Drop Down Days Days

• Progress and Guidance activities

• Mock Interviews 

• Assemblies
