At Wyvern we believe a good programme of Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) has a positive impact on students – giving them the skills, knowledge, and understanding to manage their own life-long learning and career development specifically:
- To develop themselves and their aspirations through careers and work-related education
- To find out about careers and the world of work, building strong connections with employers
- To develop skills for career well-being and employability
Our whole school approach to careers is guided by the Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Career Guidance.
- A stable careers programme
- Learning from career and labour market information
- Addressing the needs of each student
- Linking curriculum learning to careers
- Encounter with employers and employees
- Experience of workplaces
- Encounters with further and high education
- Personal guidance
As well as our Vision & Values curriculum, Wyvern Academy provides students with access to some external sources of careers guidance. This includes:
- Careers Fairs
- Employer visits and talks
- College and University visits
- Face to face, student-focused impartial career advice and guidance interviews
Full details of our work can be found in our Careers Policy.
Wyvern endeavours to continually improve careers by monitoring and evaluating our provision.
We collect student, teacher, provider, employer, and parental feedback on CEIAG experiences, this is done by:
- Feedback and evaluation forms
- Student Voice
- Text/Email requests
- Participation/attendance figures
We monitor NEET figures to access the impact of our provision, this is done by:
- Recording destination information
- Reporting information to and working with the Local Authority
- Working with local Post 16 providers
