At New Mills School our careers programme provides our students with a well-rounded education in careers, and provides them understanding on how to equip themselves with the necessary skills and tools to succeed in life beyond the classrooms here at New Mills School.

As a school we have a statutory and moral duty to provide students in Years 8 - 11 with information, advice and guidance and this is extended in New Mills School to include Year 7, as we believe that quality CEIAG (Careers Education, Information and Guidance) should be available to all students.

We aim to provide students and those supporting at home with the information required to make strong choices about their own futures, whilst encouraging all to set achievable aspirational goals.

At New Mills School we plan activities, experiences and learning opportunities for our students around the 8 Gatsby 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: Experiences of workplaces
7: Encounters with further and higher education
