Careers @ MFG

A Partnership Approach: School, Parents/Carers and Careers Professionals

Aims of the Session:


To raise awareness of the careers support at MFG To raise awareness of how you can support your child

NEET: NOT IN EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT OR TRAINING


Our staying in learning figure increased steadily over the last 5 years and is currently +97%. Of the 2013 year 11 leavers only 1 is currently NEET

THIS IS EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD

Careers support @ MFG


Careers education and information is a priority in key stage 4 and beyond. Support at MFG come from:
The school curriculum and resources
Allison Simpson Director of Education and Employment Frances Burkinshaw Advice & Guidance Officer

The statutory local authority provision for some students

What is different?
A raised PARTICIPATION AGE The age at which young people can leave learning
Learning is classed as any education delivered
In the workplace (apprenticeships and training) In further education settings

WHY?
To prevent young people drifting into unskilled jobs or unemployment. Higher qualifications lead to higher levels of pay and greater job security

What does this mean for year 9?


From 2014 young people will stay on in education or training until their 18th birthday This means students can leave school after GCSEs but they must go onto:
Further education Apprenticeships A job with a training scheme

What do we need to do?


To think of our young people as prospective employees, not just students, with skill sets to develop To help them explore the wide range of career options To help them understand the choices they have To give them access to opportunities in FE, HE and the workplace To be well-informed To offer individualised careers support
