For Pupils

Careers Guidance

Careers Education and Guidance is delivered in Citizenship lessons and aims to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to make successful choices.

Our aim is to enable all our girls to develop the skills, attitudes and gain the knowledge that will help them to make Career and other decisions wisely.

We believe that the Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is a vital part of every student’s education at the Academy. We are currently working towards an Investors in Careers Award incorporating guidelines from the Gatsby benchmarks (>>click here) and the Career Development Institute, Department of Education, Careers and Enterprise Company and Ofsted Recommendations. 

Our Careers Programme is mainly delivered through Citizenship lessons in Years 7 – 11 and in PDS in Post 16, but, also has links in the curriculum, the GST programme and through assemblies.

Our Structure for the Careers programme from Year 7 to 11 can be seen >>here. All girls have the opportunity to discover and build upon their strengths and skills through this programme.

Professional Careers Guidance is provided through Amanda Sugden Rayner, an impartial Careers Advisor available to all students and parents. Amanda visits the school weekly and runs break and lunch time sessions to help students with their choices. She attends Option Evening and Parent Evenings input. 

Careers Convention

We host an annual Careers Convention with exhibitors from Colleges, Universities, Armed Forces, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Grocery and Business, NHS to name but a few. All girls will have the opportunity to take part in the Careers Convention this year which will be held in school on Tuesday 20 November 2018.

This year we will be expanding our University Experiences by opening up trips to KS3. Contacts have been made with Bradford, Leeds, Huddersfield and York.

This is some of the feedback we have received from business who attended this years event:

"This is (personally) one of my favourite schools to attend. The girls are so enthusiastic and bubbly, always wanting to know more and improve themselves. They are a credit to your school. Also, me and my colleague were very impressed with the student reps and of course, the tasty snacks on offer at break time!" (NCS - National Citizen Service)

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Feversham Academy. Both the staff and students were enthusiastic, polite, and could not do enough to help us. It was a great opportunity for Christeyns UK Ltd to share information on the manufacturing sector, and build awareness of the vast array of careers that are available within the sector. Furthermore, it was encouraging to see so many students asking questions about apprenticeship schemes, and opportunities within local businesses. Thanks for a great morning!!" (Christeyns UK Ltd)

"It was an excellently delivered event with fantastic engagement from the pupils in attendance, from year 7 to 13. Great students with enthusiasm and engagement showing in the encounters.
I liked how the morning was split into year groups with different lengths. It might have been enhanced by the pupils having something from the exhibitors prior to the fair to help them understand what they were looking for." (RICS)

"Very well organised events, extremely helpful and polite ambassadors. Really enjoyed the event." (York St John University)

Work Experience

Year 10 and Year 12 students are involved in a programme of work experience to help prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

We give each of our Year 10 and Year 12 students a copy of the Work Experience Journal for them to complete during their time on placement. Please click here for a preview of it. 

Links with External Services, Agencies and Funding

Fast Tomato - All students have a personal log in to Fast Tomato, a Careers profile building site which can be adapted throughout the key stages.

Future First - this programme develops an Alumni of fellow students to assist us in inspiring girls in their future career choices. Our Lead Programme Officer from Future First is Alex Kiami. We have provisionally booked in some workshops for Feb/ March 2019 with the whole of Year 8 before they make their option choices.

We are reaching out to former students to sign up as Alumni. The idea is former students can come back into school to talk about their career progressions, so it becomes more 'real' for the current students attending Feversham Academy. If you are in Year 13 and moving on or you are an older sibling or parent and you attended Feversham Academy, you can sign up also. Please follow this link 

We will also receive “World of Work “ workshops which will bring to life the variety of work and education options open to our girls. It serves to leave them better informed , more skilled and motivated to work harder. The alumni from  various careers to work with them on work based projects.

Successful Futures - We are also in the process of setting up Careers input with Year 9 from NYBEP.

Other links for this Academic year are with: Kathy Gargan- Business support leader of the Careers and Enterprise Company and Caroline Gaskin from EDT -We will be looking at STEM visits for students
