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 (Strategic) – Mr Lane (Assistant Vice Principal and Head of Behaviour & Aspirations)

  • Careers Leader (Operational) – Miss Smith (Librarian, Social Media & Website Lead)

  • Link Governor - Mrs Jacqui Hutchinson

  • Enterprise Coordinators - Mrs Jill Wright/ Mrs Suzanne Strathern (Tees Valley Combined Authority)

  • Enterprise Adviser (EA) is Heather King, Local Liaison Officer at Sirius Minerals.

We are a member of the Careers & Enterprise Company 'Careers Hub'. More information is available here

Miss Smith, is available to students in the academy/careers library daily, for on hand, accessible help 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. We work alongside Job Centre Plus to offer half termly employability and CV/application drop in sessions for KS4 students.

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 and measure our progress regularly, using the Compass Tool.

You can view our most recent Compass Review (which was accredited by our Enterprise Coordinator) here:

RHA Compass Review

Benchmark

Description

  Progress

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 pupils, parents, teachers and employers.

100%

2. Learning from career and labour market information

Every pupil, 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 best use of available information.

100%

3. Addressing the needs of each pupil

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

100%

4. Linking curriculum learning to careers

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

81%

5. Encounters with employers and employees

Every pupil 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.

100%

6. Experiences of workplaces

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

100%

7. Encounters with further and higher education

All pupils 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.

100%

8. Personal guidance

Every pupil 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 pupils but should be timed to meet their individual needs.

100%


Careers Advice & Personal Guidance

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.

  • Careers Adviser: Gillian Rathbone - Stockton Borough Council - Youth Direction, is working with our students to ensure they receive the level of IAG needed.

We also work very closely with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council Foundation for Jobs and Careers & NEETs advisers. The Careers & NEETs team offers a holistic service to break down barriers to moving into education, employment or training by providing careers advice and guidance to young people aged 16-20 or up to 25 for people with learning difficulty or disability. We will refer any Year 11 who is a non attender, has low attainment or flagged as vulnerable and at risk of becoming NEET to the team. Foundation for Jobs support our school careers provison offering us Y10 work experience placements, CV and mock interview support and a wide range of opportunities for our students to get involved in within the local area.
