Careers

PMGHS careers vision:

‘To provide equal opportunity for every pupil to learn about the wide range of post-16 education, employment and training options, without exception or bias, through immersive events, a dynamic curriculum, informative lessons and knowledgeable staff.’

In January 2018 the DfE published the new statutory guidance for Career Guidance in schools.  The purpose to make sure that all young people in secondary school get a programme of advice and guidance that is stable, structured and delivered by qualified and experienced individuals. This statutory guidance has been restructured around the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks.

The CEIAG Coordinator/Adviser along with the Lancashire Enterprise Advisor, SLT, curriculum leaders, external providers, and employers strive for continuous improvement and build on each benchmark further.

The school is strong and committed to all 8 Benchmarks:

  1. A stable Careers programme
  2. Learning from Career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experience of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal Guidance

We are now working in partnership with Future U. This is a collaborative project bringing together universities, colleges, schools and businesses from across Lancashire. Future U is all about empowering young people with the knowledge and opportunities to succeed. Through its engaging programme of events and outreach activities, Future U aims to help young people overcome any barriers to their progression. Future U is part of the Office for Students Uni Connect Programme, which supports young people to progress onto Higher Education (HE) in areas where it has been identified HE participation of young people is much lower than expected. Future U is committed to this goal and has links with local HE and FE (Further Education) providers across the county, as well as community networks. It has developed a programme of engaging outreach activities and events to help young people gain sustainable skills which will lead to progression, employment and drive prosperity; something which is key to Lancashire’s future. As part of our work with Future U, we will be sharing some of our pupil data where relevant. For more information, please see this Privacy Notice.
