Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance Programme (CEIAG)
Careers Lead - Niki Papali - firstname.lastname@example.org - 07776 151930
Haybrook College is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education for all our students in years 7 – 13. We are also committed to providing access to impartial and independent careers advice through our Level 6 Careers Guidance and Development Practitioner and Careers Leader, Niki Papali.
All students are entitled to careers education and guidance that meets professional standards of practice and is person-centred, impartial and confidential and integrated into the students’ experience of the whole curriculum.
The careers programme aims to challenge stereotyping, promote equality of opportunity, inclusion and anti-racism and is planned according to the learning outcomes of the CDI Career Development Framework.
This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.
This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
We often invite speakers from our wider community to give talks to enrich our pupils’ experience of school, providing them with information that helps them make decisions at different phases of their education, widening their understanding of world and global issues and providing motivational inspiration through the sharing of a speaker’s experience. Both the School and pupils greatly appreciate the time and effort that Visiting Speakers put in to their presentations.
The purpose of this policy is to set out the School’s legal obligations when using Visiting Speakers and to set out the standards of behaviour expected from Visiting Speakers. This policy was therefore drawn up having had regard to the Government’s Prevent Duty guidance and the School’s wider safeguarding obligations. The “Prevent” statutory guidance (The Prevent Duty: Departmental advice for schools and childcare providers”, DfE, June 2015) (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prevent-duty-guidance) requires schools to have clear protocols for ensuring that any visiting speakers whether invited by staff or pupils, are suitable and appropriately supervised.
