CAREERS INFORMATION

Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance at The Bulmershe School

 

Why is Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance important?

 Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) helps young people develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to make successful choices and manage transitions in learning and work. The government has shown its commitment to the development of CEIAG through the revised Career’s Policy and statutory requirements.

 At The Bulmershe School, every effort is made to enable young people to learn about careers and the world of work so that they can manage their own development and make life choices and decisions that will benefit their own wellbeing and contribute to the wellbeing of others. 

Below is a summary of content and examples of activities by year group.

More important and relevant information will be posted on the school website during the year as and when it is available.  However, the links below may be of use to you and your child in preparation for the decisions they have to make in the coming years.

 These websites provides a wealth of information for parents about the different stages and choices our students are faced with.

 The law has changed to make schools responsible for securing independent careers guidance for their pupils in years 8-13. This is because school or college is best placed to secure the advice and support they need to help them decide what option is best for them. Your child can also contact trained advisers for impartial advice at the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900 (open from 8.00am to 10pm, seven days a week) – and they can use the web-chat service by accessing the website above.
