Careers - Our Approach to Careers Education

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance is increasingly embedded into our PSHE programme, the subject curriculum and the culture of education within the Academy. We recognise the important contribution this makes to supporting the successful transition from education to employment.

Visit our Careers - Student Resources page.

Visit our Work Experience page

Careers opportunities are organsied by Mrs E. Campbell, Assistant Principal in charge of Careers and PSHE in the Academy. Students can find her in the Assistant Principal’s office or around the academy while on duty before school or during break, lunch and/or after school.

You can email Mrs Campbell on E.Campbell@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk or Careers@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk or by contacting the Academy directly by emailing Info@harrisdulwichgirls.org.uk or calling 0207 732 2276 ext: 7911. Follow us on Twitter @CareersHgaed

We also benefit from having a careers advisor from the central Harris Federation team who works every Friday at HGAED. Our advisor Miss Gnade Gahoua meets for one-to-one scheduled meetings each week with Key Stage 4 and 5 students on a rota and the younger years during the spring/summer term. You can email Miss Gahoua at Gnade.Gahoua@harrisfederation.org.uk.

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

HAGED065CEIAG is embedded in areas of the curriculum and involves various internal and external events, experiences and visits.

Our Careers Curriculum from Year 7- 11 is delivered in PSHE lessons during coaching time in addition to drop down days, workplace visits and dedicated assemblies throughout the academic year. Each student is provided with a Unifrog account to track their careers education and find/apply for opportunities, resources and advice.

Year 10 and Year 12 students take part in a quality work experience where they can get first hand knowledge of the workplace, gain key skills and support their future pathways choices post 16 and 18.

Post-16 students have their own bespoke provision, coordinated by the Sixth Form team and delivered by their coaches. Activities involve work experience, talks, course application support, UCAS support, CV-writing and many other events. The Academy works with local universities and business partners to ensure wide-ranging provision.


Monitoring evaluation and review

Monitoring the development of CEAIG across the Academy is the responsibility of the Academy Senior Leadership Team and will be co-ordinated by the Careers Lead. The Careers Education and Guidance Improvement Plan will be developed and updated on an annual basis and will drive the work of CEAIG.

The current CEAIG Improvement Plan is available from the Careers Lead. The Careers Lead will be accountable for the effective delivery and progress made in steering through the improvement plans and ensuring that the vision for CEAIG at the Academy is achieved. Feedback on the quality of CEAIG provision will be gathered from a variety of stakeholders including students, employers, staff and parents/carers.


Gatsby benchmarks

We use Careers and Enterprise company Compass to evaluate our performance against Gatsby Benchmarks and manage, track and report on our school’s careers programme. 

The Gatsby Benchmark is a self-evaluation tool to help schools evaluate their careers and enterprise provision. The Gatsby Benchmark are at the heart of CEIAG provision at Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich. There are eight benchmarks covering different areas of quality career curriculum.

Find out more about the Gatsby benchmarks.


Destinations

As one of the key indicators in the Ofsted framework, the collation and effective evaluation of destination data for all of our students is of paramount importance. Students are each given small group and one-to-one interviews with our Careers Advisor to help ensure that they are fully equipped to make these important life choices and the data from these sessions is tracked, checked and support plans with added help are put in place to maintain high expectations for each individual’s future. 


Mock interviews

We complete one-to-one Year 11 and 13 mock interviews with the sixth form and senior leadership team to inform early intervention and to allow students allotted time to discuss their future plans and their potential pathways including subject choices and intended destinations. Harris Careers Central Team and Harris Experience Coordinators also offer support in preparing students for actual interviews for apprenticeship and competitive university courses.


Higher education opportunities

HAGED051Our Higher Education Opportunities sessions are designed to help students make their final decisions about which pathway they plan to follow and give them invaluable advice about to successfully tackle what is largely considered to be the one of the most difficult transitions in education.

These sessions are delivered during coaching time and assemblies to expose students to a range of pathways. We have a range of ‘discover events’ planned throughout the year from year 7 to ensure students have a broad knowledge of the routes available and suitable to their needs, interests and ability. Harris Careers Central team also run Next Step events where students are given subject specific guidance from a wide selection of providers that help them make informed choices.

We have a range of discover days planned for students to experience a range of universities, subjects and opportunities including Oxbridge, Kings, Goldsmiths and UCL amongst others.

The Harris Higher Education Programme Booklet reminds Year 11 students about some of the key points about university education and other options and takes them through the Harris Sixth Form application process. It is written for Year 11 students, parents and the wider family as well as tutors and staff. Click HERE to download the Harris Higher Education Programme Booklet.


STEM careers and studies

We have planned a number of STEM events for years 7-11, with the aim of introducing students to new and exciting careers and studies in STEM subjects. STEM subjects include the fields of Science, Medicine, Engineering and Finance and the event is a fantastic opportunity for our students to talk to representatives and ambassadors from each of those sectors.

We have partnered with UCL and Kings University to support students in their university choices and to promote the range of STEM courses offered at university level.

In addition, through our business partnership with KPMG, Year 7 students will be taking part in a work-ready workshop promoting careers in the technology industry.
