Careers Education Information Advice & Guidance Programme (CEIAG)

Context: CEIAG refers to a range of activities and interventions that inform pupil’s decisions regarding progression through their learning into further education and employability. The Education Act 2011 requires schools to secure access to independent careers guidance for pupils in years 9-11. A raise of the participation age has increased the age to which all young people in England are required to continue in education or training. Pupils are able to choose from full-time education school or college, an apprenticeship/ traineeship, part-time education/ training, employment or self-employment or volunteering.

Objectives of Eden CEIAG:

  1. To inspire and motivate every pupil to develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. Inspiring pupils through real-life contacts with the world of further education and work to help them understand where different choices can take them in the future.
  2. To help pupils make a smooth transition to post -16 education, employment and training and onto adult life by supporting them to overcome barriers to participation.
  3. Identifying appropriate interventions and opportunities in supporting pupils to make informed decisions with regards to education and employment.
  4. Ensuring pupil’s voices are heard in the EHCP and post 16 transition processes.
  5. Tracking the transition outcomes of pupils.

 Delivery of CEIAG and partnership working:

 CEIAG is carried out through a cohesive programme of individual independent careers meetings, Action Plans, Preparing for Adulthood Plans, External Provision placements, work experience, curriculum delivery and post-16 transition preparation. Through the CEIAG curriculum programme pupils are prepared for the responsibilities and opportunities that they will encounter in life and to aid them in making the right decisions for their futures.

During a careers interview, all pupils are helped to develop a careers action plan which is regularly monitored and reviewed. Pupils have access to a range of career education resources and on leaving they have a CV and a record of their entire academic and extra‑curricular achievements ready for the world of further education or work.

We liaise with the Local Authority around intended destinations of pupils and highlight those intending to leave or at risk of NEET (Not in employment, education or training) and work closely with the Local Authority ensuring good communication to secure positive outcomes for pupils.

Performance Indicators for CEIAG:

  • Judgements are made on the quality of independent careers guidance and the extent of students’ post 16 transition destinations.
  • The extent to which the school has developed and implemented a programme for ensuring that pupils receive effective careers guidance to help them make informed choices about their next steps.
  • How well the school meets the needs of all vulnerable groups of pupils, including reducing the numbers who do not continue to education, employment or training.
  • How well the school works with families.
