South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College has achieved the Quality in Careers Standard Award.
The Quality in Careers Standard is the national quality award for the careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools, colleges and work-based learning.
Assessors from Humber LEP, praised South Hunsley for the excellent emphasis that is placed on CIEAG throughout the school.
South Hunsley is dedicated to delivering the best standard of impartial careers guidance to young people and are therefore pleased to receive this award in recognition of the opportunities that are available to help our students make informed choices.
Assistant Head Teacher, Barry Gray said:
“I am delighted that the school has received national recognition for the thoughtful planning and effective delivery of our school careers programme. All of the school staff, including our personal development leaders, form tutors, teachers and associate staff who work to broaden student’s experiences and opportunities, share this prestigious award. As well as Trust Director of Careers and Employability at South Hunsley School, Mrs S Barley, who established our post 16 Employer Led Programme and recently won the National Apprenticeship, Apprentice Champion of the Year award for 2017. We are also very grateful to U-Explore START, who provide extensive support for our careers information, advice and guidance services.
The assessment process itself judged the school in eight key areas and was based on interviews with parents, current and previous students and Anne Newlove, our local governing body representative for careers education. The feedback we have received from the Humber LEP and Deflog VQ Trust is that South Hunsley School is delivering the best standard of impartial careers guidance to our young people.
The timing of the award is fantastic as the government has recently published the National Careers Strategy where it highlights the Gatsby Benchmarks as important processes all schools should look to adopt, and the award confirms that we are already well on the way to implementing these effectively.”
