Careers - How To Get Involved

Careers – How can you get involved?

We are hosting a mini-careers day consisting of 30 minute seminars for groups of up to 15 students from Year 9, 10 and 12 on 13th July throughout the day. If you are an Education Provider, Local/National Employer, Parent, Carer, Ex-Student or Old Newportonian who would like to present and hold a Q&A session with our students about careers in your field, please contact Mr Daniel Grindrod dgrindrod@joycefrankland.org to declare your interest.
 
 
Every young person needs high-quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future. Good career guidance is a necessity for social mobility: those young people without significant social capital or home support to draw upon have the most to gain from high-quality career guidance.

Our intent at Joyce Frankland Academy is to provide a broad, balanced careers curriculum, which embraces our core beliefs of; Explore, Fulfil, Flourish, and which provides the deep knowledge and understanding needed to allow all students to develop into independent, inquisitive, imaginative and insightful citizens who contribute positively to their communities.
 
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is an essential element of the support given to students at Joyce Frankland Academy, enabling them to prepare for the choices, challenges and opportunities that arise at each stage of their development, both in the Academy and post-18.
 
In setting out to achieve our aims, Joyce Frankland Academy uses the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Benchmarks to develop and improve the school’s careers provision. The Academy recognises that revised statutory guidance is structured around these benchmarks and that by adopting them we can be confident that we are fulfilling our legal duties.
