Careers Education Information & Guidance

CAREERS CURRICULUM INTENT

 

At Bellingham Middle School, our Careers Education Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) provision has been designed to positively support pupils to acquire the education, social and employability skills necessary for lifelong success in a diverse and changing world of work. Along with our school values of kindness, respect and resilience, pupils will understand the importance of personal values and qualities, allowing them to thrive in the workplace. Pupils will have opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and skills valued in the workplace. We also aim to prepare our pupils for the opportunities in the next stage of their education, a time when they will make choices about their future study.

 

Our Careers curriculum at Key Stage 3 provides pupils with discreet access to a planned CEIAG programme which supports us in achieving our aims. All of our CEIAG provision is developed in line with the Gatsby benchmarks which are recognised as best practice in this area.

NCC advice for students who are in employment

Below is Northumberland County Council’s advice on students who are in employment:

Did you know that?

  • All children from the age of 13 years and who are working must be registered with the Local Authority and be issued with a work permit.
  • It is an offence for an employer to employ children without registering with the local authority first.
  • The numbers of hours students can work whilst attending school are restricted. Children must not work before 7am and after 7pm.
  • Any children working without a permit is not covered by their employer’s liability insurance.
