Careers Provision

Denise Anderson:
CEIAG Program
The CEIAG program is designed to deliver the kinds of impacts that our pupils deserve. Due to the diverse nature of our pupils, the CIEAG program is bespoke based on pupil need. Through the program we aim to prepare our young people for the next steps of their lives after secondary education. This includes pupils having the opportunity to have meaningful contacts with employers and taking part in an array of trips and activities linked to careers and employment.

On both entry and throughout their time with us, we listen to our pupils and provide opportunities to build skills for their future both at Post 16 and employment. We find their interests, strengths and abilities and build a package to utilise these for future success. We have formed great partnerships with Beacon East who support the pupils in their career choices whilst offering impartial advice and guidance. Many young people come to us with little or no aspirations and through the careers program we aim to inspire each individual to pursue a onward career.

We aim to give all of our students from Yr 7 – 11 a range of meaningful encounters with employers in order to support them in making informed decisions. Many companies are involved in this including Independence Matters and NatWest.
Measuring Impact
The impact of our CIEAG program is measured through our GATSBY benchmark, which in July 2020 was recorded at 100%. Alongside this we continue to be proud of the outcomes our pupils achieve in Yr11 and our NEET figures. But more importantly the impact is seen most by the pupils going on to be successful when they leave us. We review both the impact of our program and the CIEAG program annually.

The vast majority of our pupils are considered to be at high risk of NEET. Every year we work with parents/ carers and pupils to prevent this. The figures below show the ongoing improvement: The percentages below show the pupil who secured a post 16 placement. This info is reviewed annually and next review is due October 2021.
