Careers Education programme attains highest status!Back to News
The Deepings School has been recognised for achieving excellence in their Careers, Employability and Enterprise programme and have been presented with The Quality in Careers Standard – Career Mark – Platinum award.
Following an external portfolio assessment and an on-site visit, the assessor met with key members of staff and groups of students throughout the day to discover more about the programme and how it supports students with decision making and careers planning.
The school is the first in Lincolnshire to receive a platinum award and has held external recognition for their CEIAG programme for fifteen consecutive years, retaining their commitment to this element of their learners’ education through some challenging times. The assessor commends them for this and for the work undertaken over a number of years by the Careers & Events Manager, Linda Taylor. The platinum award has only been achieved by two other schools across the whole country.
An official presentation was made by local MP John Hayes who congratulated the school for its hard work and achievements and was keen to talk to the students about their career aspirations.
Also part of the presentation party were John Ambrose from the awarding body, Complete Careers, Harry Norman, Managing Director from OAL (Olympus Automation Limited) one of many local businesses that have been working closely with the school to support careers and work-related activities, Deputy Head Ian Ladley and two Year 11 students who were involved in the assessment interviews, Katie Hand and Sam Jacklin.
