Beverley Grammar School are proud to announce they have been awarded the Quality in Careers Standard (formerly the IAG Gold Standard).
The Quality in Careers Standard is the national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools, colleges and work-based learning.
The Quality in Careers Standard is a key element of a significant piece of work the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership has led on by working in partnership with the four local authorities and the local provider network to improve access to careers information and to raise aspirations.
This innovative work has been recognised for its collaborative approach on a wider regional and national level. Their work in developing and delivering the Standard is funded by the Humber LEP, Deflog VQ Trust and the European Social Fund and has been designed for 11-19 schools, academies, colleges and providers in the Humber area. The Humber LEP is one of only 12 licensed awarding bodies nationally and is the only Local Enterprise Partnership to have been awarded this status.
From the beginning of their education at the school, students are encouraged to think about their future employable self through various activities and programmes such as careers fairs, employer visits, work experience, workshop activities, enterprise days, STEM activities, dragon’s den type activities.
Headteacher Gavin Chappell commented;
“To achieve the award Beverley Grammar School has been assessed in eight set criteria, all culminating to deliver the best standard of impartial careers guidance to our students. This award shows the level of commitment Beverley Grammar School and in particular our Careers Leader, Lee Hamshaw, has to the future careers of our students.”
More recently, students from Years 9-10 have visited the University of Hull on a ‘Taste of Uni’ day. This day raises aspirations and dispels myths surrounding cost and financial arrangements associated with university.
In September, Year 10 students will begin a new programme with the introduction of the Employability Skills Passport. The passport, validated by Humber LEP in association with the Deflog VQ Trust, and recognised by 450 local employers, will be awarded to those students who have demonstrated the seven CBI employability skills (Self-Management, Teamwork, Business and Customer Awareness, Problem Solving, Communication & Literacy, Application of Numeracy, Application of ICT), and can be shown as evidence of their skills to any potential employers.
By achieving the externally assessed Quality in Careers Standard, parents of Beverley Grammar students and the students themselves can be confident that the careers support provided by the school will help every student to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to take control of their futures.
