Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance

At Newhaven we recognise the important contribution that CEIAG makes to the education of all of our students in order that they make a successful transition from school to further education and employment and endeavour to provide a range of opportunities for students to learn about the world of work, the skills required for work and the pathways available to them. Effective CEIAG increases participation in learning which, in turn, raises attainment and supports further progression. Newhaven provides targeted and timely guidance for all of our students, with an enhanced level of support for those seen as being particularly vulnerable to leaving us without a place in further education or employment.

CEIAG Provision

The CEIAG programme at Newhaven builds in flexibility to accommodate all pupils, regardless of the point in their school career that they join us and has been created around the 8 Gatsby principles to ensure all students have access to high quality information, advice and guidance throughout their time with us.

The 8 Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career guidance are;

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

Both out Careers Programme and CEIAG Policy are monitored and reviewed by Newhaven Senior Leadership Team each year and practise as an explicit aspect of the School Development Plan. Central to this development is a dialogue with all of our key partners, including the analysis of leavers’ data produced by the Early Help department of RBG.

Employee & Further/Higher Education Engagement

We know that it is vital for our students to make informed decisions for their future through experiencing and being knowledgeable of all of the options available to them.

There are numerous opportunities throughout the academic year for providers to have the opportunity to come in to school and speak to pupils/parents/carers, please see our Careers Access Policy for details about the best way to do so.
