Staff

At Poole High School we have established a  comprehensive programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance that we consider to be an essential and integral part of a student’s learning and we work with a variety of partner organisations to provide the best guidance possible.

We have committed to gain The Quality in Careers Standard. We have incorporated this goal into our school development plan, aiming to provide an outstanding programme of CEIAG activities & guidance which will enable us to address the career development needs of all our students. We have already achieved Stage 1 Certification and are continuing to work towards higher levels as well as demonstrating successful meeting of the Gatsby Benchmarks by which schools measure their CEIAG provision.

Poole High School is keen to forge meaningful relationships with education providers, employers and businesses with a shared vision for the future.We are keen to ensure the students of today become successful employers and employees of tomorrow and welcome collaboration in identifying the skills, qualities and qualifications required to fulfil the ambition and aspirations of our pupils and the needs of our local organisations.

We ask that staff continue to provide dynamic and inspirational opportunities to bring careers learning both inside and outside of the classroom.

Our Gatsby Benchmarks

Gatsby is the measure by which schools evaluate their careers provision.

There are 8 benchmarks made up of 43 criteria. We are delighted to  have successfully demonstrated meeting each of these criteria as of Feb 2020. We are immensely  proud of this, particularly as the average across Dorset stands at 3.2 full benchmarks and furthermore, only 7% of schools nationally have achieved all 8.

The following links are just a few to the many sources of information and resources that can help staff at Poole High School support careers education within their curriculum areas.

Resources range from video clips, posters, lesson plans and quizzes to access to databases of ambassadors and speakers that can help in bringing the meaning of careers to life in the classroom.
