Morpeth Careers Programme

Sam Whitehead, Careers Lead and Partnership & Progression Coordinator

All students at Morpeth School will receive an ambitious and aspirational careers education, and leave school equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed and open-minded decisions about the paths they take now and in the future.

We offer students a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences to support their careers education, working closely with a broad spectrum of employers and specialists to deliver our careers programme both in and outside of school.

The intention of our careers education, information, advice and guidance (CIAG) programme is for students to work towards independent living and working, choice, hope and optimism, adaptability and resilience, access to and engagement in meaningful work (both voluntary and paid), opportunities to learn and make progress, and the pursuit of wellbeing and happiness. Our aim is to identify how our pupils can access these intentions, what they need in order to access these intentions and what their priorities within these intention need to be.

The school’s CIAG programme delivers careers guidance for pupils from Year 7 to Year 13 in accordance with section 42A of the Education Act 1997 and the Gatsby benchmarks. The CIAG programme has been developed to also engage parents and local employers, both in school and externally, to support our students in becoming employable and inspirational young people.

Our CIAG programme reflects the fact that we are a community committed to learning and achievement, based on friendship and respect, where everyone is valued.

We take a mixed approach to embedding the careers programme through linking with the curriculum and hosting careers specific drop-down days.
