Teacher Area (Careers)

De Lisle College is committed to providing high quality Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance to help inspire students and to enable them to make rational informed career decisions.  De Lisle College aims to meet all eight Benchmarks identified by the Gatsby Foundation.

Our Leadership team views careers as not being the responsibility of a Careers Leader and a small number of teachers, but of all staff in schools and colleges. We can make small changes in the curriculum that can have a big impact in the classrooms.

If you’d like help or support to embed careers in your subject contact heather.tyers@delisle.leics.sch.uk who is the Careers Leader for our School.

At De Lisle subject areas support careers education information and guidance (CEIAG) by the following:

  1. Have a prominent display that links subject learning and skill development to different careers.
  2. Record careers learning opportunities for students in schemes of learning.
  3. Take part in whole school ‘Career Days’ where all teachers start their lesson with a career focus , such as talking about their career pathway or showing a short film where people in a range of job roles explain the relevance of skills developed in a particular subject area to their role.
  4. Consider the needs and interests of all students and ensure that information challenges stereotyping including gender and disability.
