We’re all about the future
Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) play a vital part in the preparation of students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that come from adult life. Its central concern is preparing students for the choices, changes and transitions affecting their future education, training and life as adult members of society.
Careers education, information, advice and guidance forms an important part of the School’s Citizenship and Personal, Social and Health Education. Students experience a range of careers activities including: the School careers fair, visits to local employers and further/higher education establishments and careers exhibitions, presentations from the uniformed services, career workshops and opportunities to meet representatives from the world of work.
In Year 11, all students will have the opportunity to have a session with the Careers Connect Advisor with career action planning linked to possible progression routes. Students in Year 7-10 will also receive help and guidance from the Careers Connect Advisor as appropriate. The Careers Connect Advisor is also present at some Parents’ Evenings, Careers Events and in school each week on a Tuesday and Wednesday and provides a drop in for all students at lunchtime on these days.
