Careers Teachers

The James Hornsby School are committed to providing high quality Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance to help inspire students and enable them to make rational informed career decisions. The James Hornsby School aims to meet all eight Benchmarks identified by the Gatsby Foundation.

Subject teachers will be supported to develop and integrate careers learning opportunities into their schemes of learning. There are a range of resources on the market that suggest ways of incorporating careers learning into different subject areas. See our ‘Careers in the Curriculum’ document here and on the shared drive which also has a wide range of useful resources and websites for every subject area.

At James Hornsby we would like all subject areas to do the following:

  •  have a prominent display that links subject learning and skill development to different careers
  • develop links with businesses and organisations
  • to invite alumni and other external speakers to come into school (virtually where an actual visit is not feasible)
  • where appropriate to organise external visits by students to local businesses/organisations
  • record careers learning opportunities for students in schemes of learning
  • take part in whole school ‘Careers Days’ where all teachers start their lesson with a careers focus, such as talking about their career pathway or showing a short film where people in a range of job roles explain the relevance of skills developed in a particular subject area to their role.
  • explore the possibility of developing real projects/challenges for students with a local business or organisation e.g. a local company setting IT students the task of designing/updating their website
  • consider the needs and interests of all students and ensure that information challenges stereotyping including gender and disability
