WHAT IS CAREERS EDUCATION, INFORMATION, ADVICE AND GUIDANCE (CEIAG)?
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programmes are a means of developing the knowledge, understanding, confidence and skills a young person requires in order to make well-informed, thought through choices and plans that enable them to progress effectively into further learning and work, now and in the future. They help young people make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers and it is a vital tool in enriching students with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices, with realism and understanding.
Falinge Park High School is committed to providing a planned programme of CEIAG for all students in year 7 to 11, in partnership with outside agencies (colleges, 6th forms, apprenticeship providers, universities, university technical colleges) and Rochdale Borough Council’s commissioned provider for support and guidance, Positive Steps, whilst also conforming to the current ‘best practices’ in CEIAG laid down by the government.
The CEIAG programme is designed to meet the needs of all students at Falinge Park High School. It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities that are appropriate to students’ stages of career learning, planning and development. The careers programme includes face to face interviews at key transition points, action plans, drop-in sessions, software packages, support with applications and CV writing, careers events and sessions, and interventions with outside agencies.
In addition to their careers interviews, students and parent/carers also have continuous support through the use of email, whereby any questions or queries can be sent to Michelle Munch, the school’s careers and futures adviser at email@example.com
