Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programmes are an essential part in preparing our young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. It can help them make informed decisions and manage the transition from learners to workers. 

As options for young people become more varied and complex it is vital that all 11-19 year olds who attend Carterton Community College have a planned careers programme of activities to help them choose pathways that are right for them and enable them to manage their future careers, sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives. 

This policy sets out how careers activities are delivered at school and explains what students, parents/carers, staff and Governors can expect from the careers programme.

Business and Employers

We host Business Breakfasts where local businesses, Councillors and sometimes our MP can get together to discuss their needs as employers with their local school. Our Careers Human Library is a great example of an initiative that came our of this partnership. Employers come to talk about their business so students can learn how to be sucessful and the different pathways to be able to achieve.

Careers Development Plan

Our School is fully committed to ensuring that all of our students acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to manage their learning and career progression. We have already established a range of effective careers guidance activities which we hope will guide and support our students to achieve positive destinations such as A Levels, Higher Education, apprenticeships, technical routes or employment.

This careers development plan sets out our key approaches internally and externally to enhance the current careers guidance activities and participation opportunities already available to our students. The aim is to ensure that students are fully prepared for and informed effectively about their next steps and can therefore aspire to achieve their full potential. We want to ensure that our students have both the aptitude and interpersonal skills to effectively communicate and add value within the workplace.

Provider Access Statement

Every school must ensure that there is an opportunity for a range of education and training providers to access all pupils in year 8 to year 13 for the purpose of informing them about approved technical education qualifications or apprenticeships.
