Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

Welcome to Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG) at Rye Hills Academy

At Rye Hills we have a whole academy approach to careers with all staff supporting the delivery of CEIAG. In addition, we have a designated CEIAG team who lead, co-ordinate and monitor the quality and delivery of our careers programme:

  • Careers Leader  – Mr Lane (Assistant Vice Principal and Head of Behaviour & Aspirations)

  • Careers Officer – Miss Smith

  • Link Governor - Mrs Jacqui Hutchinson

  • Enterprise Coordinator - Mrs Jill Wright

  • Our Enterprise Adviser (EA) is Paul Callaghan - Business Development Manager at Covol. Covol are experts in Engineering compliance for all industries in Electrical, Control and Instrumentation consultancy services. They will offer us links to employers, the workplace, work experience and assist us in reaching the Gatsby Benchmarks. 

We are a member of the Careers & Enterprise 'Careers Hub' more imformation is available here

Our Careers Officer, Miss Smith, is available to students in the academy/careers library daily, for on hand, accessible help, advice and guidance. 

Students have access to a wide variety of careers based literature in the careers library. Prospectuses from all of the local colleges (Prior Pursglove, Redcar & Cleveland, Northern School of Art, Middlesbrough, Askham Bryan and Stockton Riverside etc…) and training providers are available for students to take away with them alongside an array of vocational publications detailing routes through apprenticeships and traineeships. We also have a range of prospectuses from universities across the country. In addition to the paper publications, students have access to computers before school, at break time, lunchtime and after school to research career pathways, compose CVs and fill out application forms online. 

The academy is committed to providing the highest quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance for all students in Years 7-11. We will continue to encourage and support our students beyond Year 11 through engaging with post-16 summer programmes such as the National Citizen Scheme and High Tide Summer Programmes.

We will seek to ensure that the provision we provide is bespoke to each students' individual need whether that be age, ability or educational, and that it is underpinned by equality and opportunity.

We aim to successfully embed the Gatsby Good Careers Guidance Benchmarks in our academy:

  1. To provide and embed a stable Careers Programme.
  2. To provide good quality information about jobs and careers paths in line with current labour market information.
  3. To address the needs of each student and offer a bespoke careers programme which embeds equality and diversity.
  4. To link curriculum learning to careers, with particular emphasis on STEM subjects.
  5. To provide each student with multiple opportunities, throughout their school life, to encounter employers and learn about work, employment and skills valued in the workplace.
  6. To offer each student experiences of workplaces to help their exploration of careers opportunities and expand their networks.
  7. To provide students with meaningful encounters with representatives from Further and Higher Education establishments and understand the full range of learning opportunities available to them.
  8. To offer personal guidance and impartial advice, usually in the form of a one-to-one interview, with a careers adviser.

Year 10 and 11 students will each meet one to one with a Careers Adviser from an external IAG Service. They will discuss post-16 options and offer students a wide range of impartial information and guidance as well as assist them with their applications. 

Year 9 students will receive guidance to prepare them for their KS4 options choices.

The following Careers Advisers are working with our students to ensure they receive the level of IAG needed:

  • Gillian Rathbone - Stockton Borough Council - Youth Direction
  • Andrea Robson - Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council - Foundation for Jobs
  • Maria O'Donovan - Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council - EHCP/ SEND Careers Department 

There will be a wide range of careers opportunities, events, assemblies, drop ins etc... for all students throughout the academic year. Our careers programme is constantly expanding and evolving but a typical academic year provides the following basic provisions for students:
