Careers Entitlement

Your entitlement as a student at Neatherd High School is that careers guidance:

  • is presented in an impartial manner, showing no bias or favouritism towards a particular institution, education or work option
  • includes information on the range of education or training options, including apprenticeships and technical education routes
  • is guidance that the person giving it considers will promote the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given
  • independent careers guidance is available to students from year 8 to year 11
  • ensure that there is an opportunity for a range of education and training providers to access all pupils in year 8 to year 13 for the purpose of informing them about approved technical education qualifications or apprenticeships
  • For the employer encounters Benchmark, every school should begin to offer every young person seven encounters with employers – at least one each year from year 7 to year 13 – and meet this in full by the end of 2020. Some of these encounters should be with STEM employers.

Benefits of the Neatherd Careers Programme

At Neatherd we put in a considerable amount of resources because we believe in the benefits of an effective careers education programme. Our careers education work is supported by the excellent support of different stakeholders. The benefits of our work are not achieved in isolation but we see them as being:

  • Students can make informed post 16 choices and beyond
  • It plays a part in raising the aspirations of our students
  • Used as a motivational tool to encourage students to do well so they can progress in their chosen careers
  • Helps promote positive destination figures
  • Opens our students eyes to the wide world
  • Breaks down stereotypes about different careers. Careers can be for anyone
  • Engages with our local community
  • Develops the transferable skills of our students
