Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

Woldgate is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education information advice and guidance (CEIAG) to all pupils and students in Years 7-13. Pupils are entitled to careers advice and guidance that is impartial and confidential.

Careers Information

Information on the full range of options available in education, training and work, and the progression opportunities that follow those options will be provided via a range of media including; books, leaflets and posters, software, websites, social media, telephone helplines, information talks from colleges, universities, apprenticeship providers and employers.

Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG):

Advice helps students interpret information and apply it to their own situation; guidance is the in-depth support provided by qualified practitioners to help students explore their options and make informed choices that are best for them.

Advice and guidance are closely linked to related activities such as tutoring, progress reviews, academic monitoring and mentoring. Our level 6 qualified Careers Advisor is available to provide guidance to students. All students will have the opportunity for a one-to-one careers guidance interview to discuss their future aims and aspirations.

Careers Education

Planned and progressive programmes of activities in the curriculum which help students to develop the knowledge and skills to understand themselves, research the opportunities available, make decisions and move successfully on to the next stage.

Effective engagement with Employers

Opportunities to be inspired informed and advised by employers through talks, workshops and work place visits. Employers also enhance our programme of careers education through contributing to classroom-based lessons, running CV workshops, conducting mock interviews and supporting enterprise activities. Woldgate has established links with many businesses and employers, in addition to our formal link with Rollits Solicitors through our work with the Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC).
