Humber Gold Standard Award

Humber Gold Standard

The academy is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Humber Gold Standard Award for the Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) we provide for all students. The in-depth and very rigorous assessment focused on 80 standards across 8 different modules and took place during our Raising Aspirations Day in February.

Our Raising Aspirations Days provide students from each year group the opportunity to follow a personalised timetable, focusing on a variety of careers activities, tasks and workshops in order to give them a greater insight into the potential options that are available to them in the future. The report was able to capture the success of these days, stating ‘The Raising Aspirations Days are a triumph of organisation and almost single-handedly deliver an effective CEIAG programme. The attention that goes in to differentiating the activities within the days to meet individuals’ needs is commendable.’

In addition to our Raising Aspirations Days, students have many other opportunities throughout the year to develop their knowledge and understanding of career pathways including individual careers interviews with local colleges and careers advisors, a tutor programme that focuses on career development, numerous trips and visits, and many other careers events held within and beyond the academy. We encourage all of our students to ‘dream big’ and work hard in order to achieve their goals.

The St Lawrence Academy is congratulated on achieving the Humber Gold Standard

The Humber Gold Standard is a key element of a significant piece of work the Humber LEP has led on by working in partnership with the four local authorities and local provider network to improve access to careers information to raise aspirations and inform resident’s choice.  This innovative work has been recognised for its collaborative approach on a wider regional and national level. The Gold Standard is jointly funded by Deflog VQ Trust and the Humber LEP and has been designed for 11-19 schools, academies, colleges and providers in the Humber area. To achieve the award, you have been assessed in eight set criteria, all culminating to delivering the best standard of impartial careers guidance to your young people and the quality of our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance.
