everyone’s skills and talents
At Newcastle Academy, we are working towards a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance for all our students, which focuses on developing, their:
- Career Management
- Career Self Development
- Personal Character
Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)
There are many options available to young people after the leave school and it can be difficult to find all the information.
Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is extremely useful in preparing students for the opportunities and challenges of adulthood and working life.
CEIAG is seen as playing an important role in motivating our students to maximise their academic and personal achievement whilst at school.
Newcastle Academy is currently working with the Careers Enterprise Company to build a stable careers programme to ensure that our students leave with a secure understanding of the world of work.
Our careers framework is linked to the Gatsby Benchmarks, Local Enterprise Partnerships. All students from Year 7 through to Year 11 are exposed to the many aspects of careers work undertaken here at Newcastle Academy.
We also work with Staffordshire and Stoke LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) to help deliver a vast range of exciting activities during the school year, which inspires students, develops their soft skills and give our students a great exposure to the world of work. The activities range from employer talks, careers fairs, college and university visits, motivational speakers plus much more.
We also work in partnership with Davies Group, who are a multi-award winning operations management, consulting and digital solutions provider to organisations in highly regulated markets (including insurance, financial services, utilities, communications, and to regulatory bodies) and to global businesses.
Davies have delivered in the Academy the Careers Ready programme, where students are mentored on a monthly basis, they have also support workplace visits, assessment days and have led on a number of workshops in the Academy.
As an Academy we have also worked very hard with the National Citizen Service (NCS) to help support our students. In 2018 we were classed as a Champion School and received the Gold Award.
In 2018 the Academy also became part of the Careers Hub, there are only 20 school in Staffordshire that have become a Careers Hub school, which allows the Academy have tailored advice to continue to support its students.
Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG Vision)
In an ever-changing employment landscape, our curriculum strives to prepare our students to compete practically and intellectually, and make a positive and sustained contribution as members of a local community and global society.
The development of personal and professional skills, characteristics and attributes is an integral part of our school’s curriculum to ensure students are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment with training.
