8 The Progress File Process The progress file process complements the careers education, information, advice and guidance curriculum; pupils continually update their career plan, and at each transition stage complete a standard career plan for inclusion in the progress file. The progress file is then used to inform careers advice and guidance, the selection of work-related learning opportunities, mock interviews and the development of personal statements. 8

9 Components of Learning Guidance 9

10 Effective use of the Progress File PUPILS: Reflect on their achievements; Set targets for progression and achievement in their learning and to inform their career decision making; Review their target setting process at the twice- yearly pupil appraisal interviews; and Report a strong sense of ownership of the process.

11 Effective use of the Progress File TEACHERS: Facilitate year 8 pupils to complete a review of their KS2 achievements and using this information as a baseline from which to set targets for their new post primary school; Focus sharply on developing the pupils target setting skills; Embed the development of the skills within a series of lessons within the pastoral programme; and Review the target setting process at the twice-yearly pupil appraisal interviews.

24 Session 3 e-Widening Horizons: Learning from the Experience of the Pilot Schools. 24

25 The e-progress file Pilot in Hunterhouse College

26 Introduction Hunterhouse College is a Cross Community Grammar School for girls. Prior to e-progress file the paper version was and is still in use with all Key Stages. In Sixth Form it has been used for the following purposes Personal Development Career Planning and Application to HE As a hook to hold together the various challenges in the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness. When provided with the opportunity to pilot e-progress file NI it seemed appropriate in light of our Personal Development ethos in Sixth Form

27 Hunterhouse College Pilot Our pilot of e-progress file involved 8 members of staff – 4 Personal Development Tutors and 4 Careers Tutors 100 Year 13 pupils All available ICT facilities in the school The lesson was conducted at lunchtime in order to free up ICT facilities Training for Staff happened in August

28 Advantages and Challenges A big advantage for the pupils was a place to put everything that related to personal development A big advantage for staff was being able to monitor progress A big challenge for staff was teaching at lunchtime in order to have the required ICT facilities

29 Sixth Form Personal Development August Induction Initial review and target setting Tutor Period - PD, COPE and Careers Enrichment Time – Skills development Lecture Time – HSE February and November Review Meetings

30 Hunterhouse College teaching/facilitation time Total PD Time 4hrs Tuesday 2hrs Placements/Enrichment Sept-Dec Jan-April Thursday 1hr Lecture Time Sept-April Friday 1hr PD Time/Careers Sept-Dec Jan-April

31 How does Progress File fit in? It is a hook to hang personnel development, skills development and the independent learner mindset on. It encourages a new way of thinking. It encourages planning and espouses the plan-do-review road to success. It engages pupils in a continuous progress monitoring, checking and reviewing process. It engages pupils in assessing their skills, looking to their strengths and weaknesses, identifying areas for improvement and developing the skills they lack. It supports life long learning and the collection of evidence.

32 Where does Progress File fit in? Progress File links all the strands of Personal Development together We use Progress File for Self management Skills development Careers and employability Sixth Form Induction Tutor time CEIAG

33 What does Progress File do? Induction provides pupils with the tools they need for approaching their learning from a plan-do-review mindset looking at how you learn best and how you can improve your own learning and performance Checking and Reviewing Progress and Preparing for a Review leaves them in the correct mindset for review driven employment and EMA Goal, Target setting and Action Planning provides the tools for all manner of planning and preparation from educational to personal, social and career plans Thinking about opportunities to explore employment, Volunteer and develop skills encouraged pupils to think about how they can prepare themselves for work Gathering and collecting evidence engenders a preparedness culture

35 Mapping Used in August for Induction and continuous pupil monitoring Induction (check yourself out, whats next, My subject choice, what I want to achieve in Year 13 and 14, Goals, targets and action planning) Used in early September for preparation for the year ahead Planning my learning ( planning for learning, my assessment results, my revision plan)

36 Used in preparation for Career problem solving and planning Activities in Sixth Form Planning for life and work (how many lives do I have, where is my life going, making the move) Used in Career problem solving activities Reflecting on me (Strengths and weaknesses, my interests, personal qualities, my skills) and Planning my learning (my qualifications, my learning log)

37 Used in Career research activities Transition Planning (my careers ideas, job skills, Gap year, work, more education, applications to higher education)

38 Preparing for life and work How many lives do I have? The purpose is to establish need for balance and life priorities Where is my life going? The purpose is to focus on the problem facing the student and explore ways of solving it Making the Move The purpose is to prepare the student for whatever the move or transition might be Opportunities to develop your life and work skills The purpose is to allow the pupil to explore ways to improve their profile in general but in particular their skills profile

Preparing for Success a Guide to Developing Effective Career Decision Makers. DENI 2010

44 There are 3 main aims needed to realize this objective and e-Progressfile provides a way to evidence each of these aims. Essential for ETI inspection

45 Aim 1: Self-Awareness and Development Identifying, assessing and developing the skills and qualities necessary to choose and implement an appropriate career plan. Self-Awareness and Development

46

52 Advantages…for the teacher Fits perfectly with CEIAG and new curriculum aims Can easily provide evidence of reflection and target setting in all subjects Teachers and pupils can access the materials both in school and at home Encourages independence

53 Challenges for pupils… Commitment to the process and sustained use is essential Understanding the importance of self evaluation and recording evidence of achievement Loss of individuality Not having access to a computer and the internet

66 ETI Report

67 ETI:Using the Progress File 67

68 ETI:Using the Progress File 68 In the majority of schools, the progress file is not used well to inform any robust target-setting, and does not inform a regular collaborative review process between the teachers and the pupils. In these schools the management of the progress file has not developed sufficiently from that of the record of achievement and there is a persistent lack of integration between the progress file and other aspects of the curriculum; there is little evidence that the progress file is valued by pupils

69 Effective Use of Progress File 69 is used effectively by pupils to reflect on their achievements, to set targets for progression and achievement in their learning and to inform their career decision making. In the best practice, the progress file works effectively because it is fully supported by the senior management team, and is sharply focused on developing the pupils target setting skills
