What is CEIAG?

The aim of CEIAG is to help learners find out about the world of work, develop key employability skills and ensure they take responsibility for planning their own pathway.

"Good careers guidance widens pupils’ horizons, challenges stereotypes and raises aspirations. It provides pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to the next stage of their life."

You can download a copy of our CEIAG policy here, our Provider Access policy is here.

A CEIAG Calendar of events can be found here.

We review these policies annually, and adapt our programmes accordingly.

The impact of the programme is measured using the whole school evaluation systems, by using Compass to map against the benchmarks, by annual reviews of the quality award, by parent, teacher and student voice and by the destination data of our students.
