Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance
Our programme begins in Years 7 and 8 when students are introduced to the world of work and encouraged to explore the variety of career paths open to them. In Year 9 students are supported in choosing their options, and in the later years help and advice is given to students so that each of them is able to make an informed choice about what they will choose to do after they leave school.
You will find our Personal Development Map below. Alongside events, assemblies and form time, PSHE lessons will regularly involve CEIAG-related content including:
- Individual careers research using Kudos and E-Clips
- Talks from professionals in various industries
- Presentations from FE/HE/training providers
- Employability skills sessions, e.g. CV writing, interview technique, and applications
- We also arrange activities during themed weeks.
We ask teachers to integrate careers-related content into their lessons throughout the year, but particularly during themed events, such as National Careers Week and National Apprenticeship Week.
All students’ development is mapped out and shared with students in the Personal Development Map:
Employers and Businesses
As part of our programme, we are always looking for professionals and representatives from local and national businesses to work with us. This could be anything from a talk or workshop at the school, to a tour of your facilities, to mentoring sessions. If you would like to get involved and support our students, please contact Mr Lally [email protected], who will be keen to discuss opportunities with you.
