Baker Clause and Provider Access Policy (including our work with colleges and apprenticeship providers)

The Harris Academy St. John’s Wood Provider Access Policy sets out the arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.

This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.


Pupil entitlement

All students in years 7-11 are entitled to: 

  • Access to a planned careers programme relevant to their year group - this includes information about colleges and apprenticeships
  • Access to a qualified, impartial and independent careers adviser for personalised guidance 
  • Access information about the world of work and labour market 
  • Access information and guidance about higher education, training, and employment opportunities 
  • Develop personal and enterprise skills to improve their employability 
  • Find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme, which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point. 
  • Hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events. 
  • Be informed about how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses. 
  • Access to a curriculum rich in information about careers and the world of work. 
  • Access a programme of CEIAG which challenges stereotypes and discrimination and promotes equality and diversity in training and in the workplace. 

Objectives

Through a planned programme of CEIAG that takes a full 11-16 approach, Harris Academy St John’s Wood (HASJW) seeks to help all students to take their place as suitably qualified and responsible adults within society. HASJW endeavours to provide independent and impartial careers guidance throughout students’ time at the Academy to support career and option choice, raising the aspirations and achievement of individual students and equipping them with skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding as a foundation for managing their lifelong career and learning. 

We aim to enable young people to learn about careers, learning and work so that they can manage their own development and make life choices and decisions that will benefit their own wellbeing and contribute to the wellbeing of others. We take a skills-centred approach to CEIAG alongside providing guidance and support. 

HASJW aims to deliver a broad, balanced and connected CEIAG curriculum that addresses young people’s entitlement and provides students with personal, social and employability skills alongside the knowledge and understanding to support: 

  • Self-development through careers and work-related education (understanding themselves and the influences on them) 
  • Learning about careers and the world of work. 
  • Career Management (developing skills for career wellbeing and employability).

 


For Parents and Carers

  • To be fully involved by supporting the Academy in its development of the CEIAG curriculum. Parents will be expected to take an active part in the CEIAG delivery whether it be through home-based discussions, actively working with students on career planning tasks and even working with the Academy though providing local support in the form of guest speakers.

For Teachers and Tutors

  • Deliver the CEIAG unit as organized by the teacher in charge of careers, ensuring that they deliver the units in a motivating and stimulating way that encourages their tutees to become self-aware and to explore their career development and career management;
  • Ensure that they support the delivery of the CEIAG that is relevant to their own subject area’s programmes of study and schemes of work. This will primarily be achieved through the enterprise contracted unit of work which will develop enterprise and employability skills;
  • To act as role models for students in developing the Science like and enterprising attitudes that will act as the foundation stones for motivating students to be lifelong learners.

Teachers/Tutor who are interested in developing their knowledge and understanding of the Careers curriculum are encouraged to visit the following link.

https://www.careersandenterprise.co.uk/online-careers-leader-training-course

Here you will find a free CPD course which is designed to provide foundational knowledge for Careers Leaders and those interested in the role.

This free course comprises of five modules that each take approximately two hours to complete.

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Outlined a career guidance development plan that supports the school or college to achieve the Gatsby Benchmarks.
  • Identified how you will lead others to deliver, refine and quality assure the career guidance development plan.
  • Outlined a plan to manage your own development as a Careers Leader.

Management of provider access requests

Procedure

A provider wishing to request access should contact Laura Lewis, Vice Principal with oversight of Careers Education. Telephone: 0207 7228141; Email: laura.lewis@harrisstjohnswood.org.uk


Opportunities for access

A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers the opportunity to visit our school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carers, these are detailed in our online careers plan.  We believe in a robust careers programme broadly accessible to all our year groups with key features for careers engagement.

We are particularly keen to provide the highest quality work experience and internship opportunities to our students and this is an area of great need.  Please speak to our Careers Leader to identify the most suitable opportunity for you to support our school.

We have focused opportunities targeted at STEM and High Achieving students with bespoke programmes which you may also wish to consider supporting.


Premises and facilities

We have outstanding presentation facilities including a large auditorium for year groups of 200 or more, a lecture theatre seating 90 as well as fully equipped classrooms and conferencing facilities (with interactive smartboard technology) which can be booked for suitable opportunities.  Please feel free to contact us directly to discuss further you requirements for events which you have in mind.  

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature with our Careers team at the HASJW resource Hub which is regularly updated and is accessible to all students throughout the school day and for after school activities. 

All students have email access and we are willing to send opportunities to targeted students.  We have mailing lists for year groups and students who have shown an interest in particular industries or sectors for a targeted approach.
