Careers at Falinge Park

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is a programme of activities, interventions and support delivered in school.  The programme aims to equip students with the confidence and knowledge to move on successfully after year 11.  To ensure excellence we map provision to the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks, these are a framework of guidelines that all schools are encouraged to work within.  We also adhere to the Baker Clause, the clause states that schools must allow colleges and training providers access to all students in years 7-11 to ensure that they are aware of all academic and vocational routes available to them. For more information please review our Careers policy found below.

Falinge Park High School is committed to providing a planned CEIAG programme for all students in years 7-11.  The programme includes individual career guidance interviews, group and whole school activities and outside interventions and is differentiated and personalised to ensure activities are appropriate to students’ stages of career learning, planning and development.

CEIAG programmes are recognised to have a significant contribution in preparing young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and life experiences post high school.  We therefore strive to conform to the current “best practices” in CEIAG as laid out in Government directives and continuously look to review and improve provision in school.
