Employers

We are keen to develop links with local employers

In order to give our students work related learning experience throughout their five years at Heworth we work closely with the North East Learning Education Partnership and Gateshead Council to identify events and activities that will allow pupils to gain a better understanding of the work of work.

Our Careers Convention, held annually in the spring term, is an opportunity for employers to meet students individually and discuss suitable opportunities with them.

If you or your colleagues would like to support us with this important work, please email claire.bell@consilium-at.com

 

The Careers Curriculum at Heworth Grange is driven by our aims to provide pupils the opportunities, support and information they need in order to make informed decisions and achieve long term financial well-being.

We are working towards achieving the eight Gatsby Benchmarks identified as the core dimensions of good careers and enterprise provision in schools: GATSBY BENCHMARKS

These benchmarks form the backbone of the DFE's guidance for delivering careers education in schools.

The DfE sets out why these benchmarks are important:

  • “Every school and college should have an embedded programme of career education and guidance that is known and understood by students, parents, teachers, governors and employers”

  • “All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers.”

  • “The curriculum offers excellent opportunities for developing the knowledge and skills that employers need and subject teachers can be powerful role models to attract pupils towards their subject and the careers that flow from it. Schools should ask all teachers to support the career development of young people in their tutorial role and through their subject teaching”
