CAREERS EDUCATION & GUIDANCE
The CEIAG Strategy at The Leicester Partnership School will be led by the eight Gatsby Benchmarks and the three PSHE Association core themes. Through the use of these key principles across the Key stages we aim to create an inclusive CEIAG programme that will raise student’s aspirations, support
transition into further education and employment and enable students to develop the skills and outlook they need to achieve career wellbeing, adaptability and resilience.
Benchmark 1: A stable careers programme.
Benchmark 2: Learning from career and labour market information.
Benchmark 3: Addressing the needs of each pupil.
Benchmark 4: Linking curriculum learning to careers.
Benchmark 5: Encounters with employers and employees.
Benchmark 6: Experience of the workplace.
Benchmark 7: Encounters with further education.
Benchmark 8: Personal Guidance.
PHSE CORE THEMES

At key stage 3, students build on the knowledge and understanding, skills, attributes and values they have acquired and developed during the primary phase. PSHE education acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people experience, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the knowledge and skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students learn to manage diverse relationships, their online lives, and the increasing influence of peers and the media.
At key stage 4, students deepen knowledge and understanding, extend and rehearse skills, and further explore attitudes, values and attributes acquired during key stage 3. PSHE education reflects the fact that students are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking on greater responsibility for themselves and others
