Welcome to the Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance website from Park View School
We place a great emphasis on ensuring that students get Information, Advice and Guidance throughout their time in the school but particularly at key transition moments.
We have a dedicated, non-teaching Director of Information Advice and Guidance, Miss L. Gulliver available Monday, Wednesday and Friday located in the sixth form at our Church Chare site contactable via: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0191 3882248. Miss Gulliver tracks student intentions and directs them to the courses which suit their aspirations.
The PSHE programme provides suitable careers-related activities for each year group and, in Year 9 and 11, is strengthened with guidance meetings for parents/carers. All students in Year 9 and 11 are given individual interviews, which parents/carers are welcome to attend, before making final KS4 and post-16 choices.
Year 12 students attend a Higher Education convention and receive both UCAS and employment information throughout their time in the Sixth Form.
All students in the school have a named personal tutor with whom to discuss progress and future plans and a team of staff offer individual counselling and support to those who want it on GCSE and A-level results days.
Investor in Careers Award – Park View School achieved the Investor in Careers (IiC) award in October 2014 having demonstrated a commitment to provide impartial, independent careers education, information, advice and guidance to all students. IiC is a quality standard for the management of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and is now the most widely used quality award of its kind recognised nationally across the country. This is one of the highest accolades an organisation can receive for excellence in this area of work. The IiC standard is about improving students’ awareness of opportunities, raising their aspirations and working with them to ensure they achieve their full potential.
