Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) along with working with employers has a large impact on preparing students for post 16 education and the working world.
Good Career guidance helps inspire students towards further study and enables them to make informed decisions whenever choices are open to them. It helps them to understand enough about the world of work to know what skills they need to succeed. Good career guidance helps open student’s eyes to careers they may not have considered.
The Academy provides impartial information, advice and guidance on careers education as well as employability skills that students can use to help them effectively plan for their future.
This involves a high level of support around higher education, apprenticeships and employment. The aim is to ensure all pupils secure the right courses at the right level to sustain post-16 destinations.
