Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance – CEIAG
We believe that the education we provide our students should enable them to develop independence, resilience and give them the skills they need to continue to succeed once they leave BVC. Good career guidance is an essential part of this and we aim to ensure that students have considered all the opportunities they have available, raising their aspirations and have the advice and guidance that will allow them to make appropriate decisions. Preparation for future transitions should be smooth and well informed to facilitate effective career management.
Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) enables our students to gain an understanding of themselves that will assist with their future. They gather information about the options that are available to them to help make realistic career decisions. This includes researching about the wide range of options and different pathways that can be taken to reach their career goals.
We have a stable but progressive CEIAG programme, which considers the students as individuals and allows them to develop their skills and attributes. We promote an ethos that encourages sustainable employability throughout future working lives and strongly believe that our knowledge of our students helps to give them the support they need to make the right choices to allow them to succeed. Effective careers education and guidance has the capacity to make a positive contribution to the well-being of individuals, their families and their communities; aiding social and economic growth.
Our CEIAG programme has been developed in consideration of the Gatsby Report’s benchmarks, and the CDI (Career Development Institute) Framework for careers, employability and enterprise education 7-19.
There are a wealth of resources available to help with research about different careers and help with the decisions about what to do once students leave Joyce Frankland Academy.
