Careers Programme at Isaac Newton Academy

 

We aim to equip every student with the knowledge, learning power and character necessary for success at university and beyond

 

We are striving to achieve the Gatsby benchmarks through support and advice of many external agencies, including The Careers and Enterprise Company.

The eight Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance are

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. Experiences of workplaces
7. Encounters with further and higher education
8. Personal guidance.

 

At INA we continually measure and assess the impact of the careers programme through student, parent and staff questionnaires and our commitment to the BRIDGES programme. Within the BRIDGES programme we develop the character disposition of students and staff which students reflect on bi-annually in dedicated sessions.
