Career Opportunities Careers Education, advice and guidance
Students at Alt Bridge School access a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum, which is both differentiated and supplemented in order to meet the holistic needs of students. The school has a pivotal role in preparing students for transitions into the next stage of their education, training or employment. Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is an important and integral part of all learners’ entitlement and learning.
Our curriculum intent is to ensure that our students are well prepared for adulthood and are set up to achieve personal success in their chosen pathways. We aim to equip them with the knowledge they need to achieve whilst ensuring they have the skills to apply this knowledge widely. We recognise the importance of supporting the retention of information from one lesson to the next and building progressively and cumulatively on key knowledge and skills. We hold high expectations of, and for our students and work to instil in them, a commitment to continued learning.
All careers information is presented in an impartial manner, includes information on the full range of post 16, post 18 education and training options, and promotes the best interest of the learners to whom it is given.
The objectives of the Careers curriculum Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance policy are as follows:
- To ensure that all students at the school receive a stable careers programme
- To enable all students to learn from information provided by the career and labour market
- The CEIAG programme should be individual and address the needs of each student
- To link the curriculum learning to careers learning
- To provide students with a series of encounters with employers and employees
- To provide students with experiences of workplace(s)
- To ensure that students have a series of encounters with further and higher education
- To provide each student with the opportunity to receive personal guidance
Alt Bridge School and Post 16 believes that good CEIAG connects learning to the future. It motivates young people by giving them a clearer idea of the routes to jobs and careers that they will find engaging and rewarding. Good CEIAG widens pupils’ horizons, challenges stereotypes and raises aspirations. It provides pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to the next stage of their life. This supports social mobility by improving opportunities for all young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special educational needs and disabilities.
Through a planned programmed of careers education and one to one guidance we are committed to providing the appropriate activities and experiences to enable learners to make well informed decisions and successful transitions from key stage 3 to key stage 4 and from key stage 4 to key stage 5 to Further Education, Supported Internships, Traineeships/Apprenticeships or Employment.
