Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)
Our vision is to nurture today’s young people and inspire tomorrow’s leaders. We strive to help our young men achieve their very best academically and personally, pursuing the best possible progression pathways after completing their education at our school.
Every pupil is encouraged to set their sights high for their future, nurture their gifts and make the most of their talents regardless of their background or individual circumstances. In order to help them prepare for college, university and the world of employment, we provide timely careers guidance, enterprise and leadership initiatives in school.
Through the school’s leadership specialism and our partnership with our Enterprise Adviser and Chair of Governors, Mo Isap, we continue to develop links with leading local employers in professions, business, industry and the public, community and voluntary sectors. We invite leading, successful and accomplished businessmen and women from the community and beyond to inspire our learners to be the very best they can be.
Years 10 and 11 pupils are offered one to one independent advice and guidance interviews to explore their post 16 options with a view of pursuing their post 18 education goals. These guidance interviews provide an overview for pupils and their options including apprenticeships and information on the current labour market. Each pupil visits a workplace for experience and select pupils participate in our new, innovative Star Enterprise programme, which will encourage pupils to hone independent learning and rigorous academic research skills, while engaging with CEOs and Directors of organisations to direct their research projects.
In Years 11, pupils receive keynote addresses from an array of speakers and select pupils are offered the opportunity to participate in a residential at Oxford or Cambridge University. Pupils are also offered Lancaster University’s Access to Medicine programme, which provides a guaranteed medical interview.
Our annual Careers Fair and Aspirations Day takes place in the autumn term. Inspiring guest speakers provide a keynote address before pupils explore exhibitors from various sectors. A wide spectrum of providers attend the fair including representatives from London School of Economics, Oxford University, Manchester Air Groups and many other organisations that support our pupils careers education.
Our CEIAG provision is evaluated with pupils, teacher and employers on an annual basis.
