Aurora Severnside School's comprehensive careers programmes help schools to meet statutory requirements and Gatsby Benchmarks, giving students the knowledge and competitive edge needed to achieve the best possible career outcomes.

The Gatsby Benchmarks

A stable career programme

  • Feedback will be captured by different ways to show distance travelled.

Learning from career and labour market information

  • Students and parents can access and use information about labour markets and future study options to inform their support for their children’s career pathways.

Addressing the needs of each student

  • Each student will have a folder allocated to them with their individual Moving on Plan.
  • These folders will be kept in school for students to access.
  • Rebuild Support will, with the Transitions Team and contribute to destinations and provide data for subsequent data comparisons.

Linking curriculum learning to careers

  • Rebuild Support will provide a range of career-based workshops that will count as career encounters to enhance their careers awareness and knowledge.

Encounters with employers and employees

  • Rebuild Support will support the staff with arranging a series of speakers and employer visits. 

Experiences of workplaces

  • Each Year 10 student will undertake an experience of work placement.  This placement will have a “Health & Safety Assessment” and a current ELI (Employer Liability Insurance) Certificate. It will also provide an additional assessment based on any additional needs that the student may have).

Encounters with further and higher education

  • This will be achieved through parents’ evenings, during which families/students will be signposted to information evenings.
Personal guidance
  • Rebuild Support will provide each student with an initial careers interview and any subsequent follow-up interview.  The advice/guidance and any decisions discussed will be recorded on a “Moving on Plan” and filed within their allocated folder.
