Humberston is an outstanding academy proud of our exceptionally high standards and traditional ethos. We offer a diverse enrichment programme in order to develop skills outside of the classroom.

Careers Guidance & Post 16

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

CEIAG (Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) is designed to allow students to make informed decisions when considering their opportunities and life after Humberston Academy. It is a means of developing students’ knowledge, understanding and confidence to enable them to make educated and well-informed choices in relation to further education and work based learning.

Humberston Academy aims to provide quality advice and guidance to all students within the Academy. This includes supporting our students as they select GCSE options at the end of Year 8 and enabling them to make knowledgeable decisions for their post-16 choices following year 11.

Our CEIAG Co-ordinator is Mrs Law, who can be contacted via email nlaw@humberstonacademy.co.uk or by phone on 01472 319990.

Measuring the impact of CEIAG

Our CEIAG Co-ordinator is part of the Senior Leadership Team and reports to the Senior Leadership Team on a half termly basis regarding the effectiveness and impact of different activities. We use ‘Compass’ – the careers benchmark tool as outlined in the Gatsby Benchmarks to assess and improve our current CEIAG provision. Our progress is reviewed regularly throughout the academic year to ensure that we meet all standards.

We will monitor the impact of our action plan and the CEIAG we deliver mainly through feedback from students and staff. All activities will be reviewed to ensure all goals and aims are met. As an academy, we will also work with parents, employers, the local community and stakeholders to ensure that students are able to make informed choices about their future.
