CEIAG is provided from Years 7 to 11, both within the curriculum areas and through additional activities provided within school and through external agencies. Colleges and other agencies engaged in further and higher education and apprenticeship opportunities will regularly attend parents evenings and pathways evenings. Careers related topics are taught throughout the PSHE scheme of work for all year groups.
Additionally, as students reach Years 9 and 10 we will arrange taster days at colleges and universities and invite such organisations in to do assemblies and have a presence at events such as our “Future Foundations Careers Fair”.
This annual event gives every year group a chance to engage with a range of different people and influences from the world of education and work.
We work with Positive Steps and have a qualified careers adviser based in school for two days per week. Activities undertaken are careers interviews on a 1:1 basis, group workshops and informal drop-in sessions for students during lunchtime in the atrium. The careers adviser also attends parents evenings and pathways evenings.
