Student Aspirations

Student Aspirations at Central Foundation Girls’ SchOOL

At Central Foundation Girls’ School all students are actively encouraged to plan for their future. Some students may have a career path in mind and know exactly what they want to do. However, there will also be those who may be undecided and need additional advice, guidance and information to help them make informed decisions.  Within the school, students are given a wide range of education and information to support them their future career decisions. These include:

  • Taught careers education modules, which are delivered by tutors as part of the PSHEE programme. During these lessons students have the opportunity to reflect upon the skills and qualities needed for different careers and are encouraged to carry out their own research into careers and job roles.
  • Students in Year 11 receive one-to-one interviews with an independent careers advisor.
  • Students get the opportunity to attend a range of presentations given by external speakers about different career/ further education routes through the mentoring programmes that are offered to students in Year 9, 10, 11 and the Sixth Form.
  • For further information or if you have any questions please contact Dr Bailey-Morrissey, Careers Leader at cmorrissey@central.towerhamlets.sch.uk

vision

From Year 7, students are encouraged to think about how the subjects they study, build their work skills and feed into career options.  Students are encouraged to develop the skills and self-awareness that they need for a successful working future.  These aims are achieved through:

• The Living in the Wider World PSHEE careers focused module where there is a focus on self-development.
• Career themed mornings (one per Year group).
• Collapsed timetable days, e.g. Presenting You! During this one day event, students scrutinise the impact of how they present themselves, in person, on paper and digitally. 

• Mentoring with business professionals (current partners: KPMG & Partnership)
• Ad hoc activities, e.g. university trips.

STUDENT ENTITLEMENT

At Central Foundation Girls’ School we value the importance of introducing the idea of careers as soon as students join the school in Year 7. All students receive a range of careers information, guidance and experiences through careers events, activities This may include workplace visits, employer talks, information on apprenticeships and information regarding students’ next steps from colleges and universities.

Many careers-related learning activities and events are organised either in school or off site. In addition, students across all Year groups participate in a structured programme of careers education. This is delivered through PSHEE lessons and during tutor time in tutor groups comprising Years 7 to 13. A progressive programme of activities from Year 7 onwards helps students to develop self-awareness, explore different career paths and to manage individualised career development.

The Careers programme is reviewed and updated on an annual basis.  The next review will take place in September, 2019.

Work Experience

Students have the opportunity to undertake work experience placements in Year 10, Year 11 and in the Sixth Form. The aim of work experience is to give students the opportunity to gain an insight into the world of work either to help students with their career choices or to enable them to see the skills and qualifications needed to enter a given profession or sector.

We are supported in provided students with work experience through the Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership (THEBP) who take health and safety checks for placements on our behalf. Through the use of an employer database we are able to provide students with a range of work experience placements, giving students the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of sectors. There is a rigorous process where students complete an application form; identify their areas of interest; parental agreement is sought; and jobs are matched to student interests. Student feedback is also sought at the end of placement.

Measuring the impact of our Careers Programme

At Central Foundation Girls’ School following the completion the online Compass Tracker Tool, we are working towards achieving all eight Gatsby Benchmarks. The Compass self-evaluation is carried out on an annual basis by the Careers Leader. Provision of the careers programme is monitored through regular feedback from stakeholders including students, staff, and teachers. This feedback is collected through online surveys following careers activities and at the end of each academic year.  External provision is monitored and evaluated through the School’s Quality Assurance procedures including observations, learning walks, work scrutiny, student, and if appropriate parental, voice. Feedback is analysed by the Careers Leader and shared with staff and teachers.

The effectiveness of our careers guidance will be reflected in the higher numbers of students progressing to positive destinations such as apprenticeships, technical routes, Sixth Form colleges, further education colleges, universities or employment.  Destination data (DfE) is used to assess how successfully students make the transition into the next stage of education or training, or into employment and to inform future CEIAG provision. 

A designated governor has responsibility for overseeing the quality of careers guidance. In addition, an Assistant Headteacher works closely with the Careers Leader to ensure the careers programme is fit for purpose.

The Gatsby Charitable Foundation (http://www.gatsby.org.uk/) has provided schools with a clear blueprint of what good careers provision should look like. At Central Foundation Girls’ School we support the achievement of the eight Gatsby benchmarks:

Benchmark 1: A Stable Careers Programme

Every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by Students, parents, teachers, governors and employers.

Benchmark 2: Learning from Career and Labour Market Information

Every Student and their parents should have access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. They will need the support of an informed adviser to make the best use of available information.

Benchmark 3: Addressing the Needs of Each Student

Students have different career guidance needs at different stages. Opportunities for advice and support need to be tailored to the needs of each Student. A school’s careers programme should embed equality and diversity considerations throughout.

Benchmark 4: Linking Curriculum Learning to Careers

All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of careers paths.

Benchmark 5: Encounters with Employers and Employees

Every Student should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This can be through a range of enrichment activities including visiting speakers, mentoring and enterprise schemes.

Benchmark 6: Experiences of Workplaces

Every Student should have first-hand experience of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing, and/or work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.

Benchmark 7: Encounters with Further and Higher Education

All Students should understand the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. This includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace.

Benchmark 8: Personal Guidance

Every Student should have opportunities for guidance interviews with a careers adviser, who could be internal (a member of school staff) or external, provided they are trained to an appropriate level. These should be available whenever significant study or career choices are being made. They should be expected for all Students but should be timed to meet their individual needs.
