We want our students to fully understand the world of possibilities out there, make the most of their talents, and create lasting careers. We help all our students to plan and manage their careers effectively, ensuring progression which is ambitious and aspirational.
CEIAG contributes to raising pupil achievement, and helps students focus on their longer-term career. We provide person-centred, impartial and confidential careers information. It is integrated into students’ experience of the whole curriculum and is based on a partnership with students and their parents or carers.

We are committed to ensuring students experience a full, varied and interesting Careers journey. To have the opportunity to explore job families, their own interests, skills, passions, work preferences and understand the wealth of jobs and education available to them once they leave school. All students provide evaluations and feedback for any Careers activity they participate in. This is essential to ensure we can review and amend sessions accordingly and also enables us to measure the impact these sessions have.
Parents/carers have an important role to play in supporting their daughter with their careers planning. We encourage them to support and engage with their daughters careers activities and are able to use the software programmes via your daughters access. Parents will be informed when students meet with any of the Careers Department via their planners so that you can follow up and support the conversation and help them explore their options.
Strong links have been forged with local employers, colleges and universities. We strive to help our pupils and their parents to make informed decisions about subject choices and future career pathways.

All careers events and activities have student evaluations completed and impact measured and reviewed regularly.
