Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) programmes make a major contribution in preparing our students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences that life demands.
A planned progressive programme of activities across all years in Wye School supports students in choosing 14 – 19 pathways that suit their interests and abilities and help them to follow a career path and sustain employability throughout their working lives.
Wye School's Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance Policy has the following aims:
- to contribute to strategies for raising achievement, especially by increasing motivation;
- to support inclusion, challenge stereotyping and promote equality of opportunity;
- to encourage participation in continued learning including higher education and further education;
- to develop enterprise and employment skills;
- to reduce drop out from and course switching in education and training;
- to contribute to the economic prosperity of individuals and communities;
- to meet the needs of all our students through appropriate differentiation;
- to focus students on their future aspirations;
- to involve parents and carers;
- to involve external providers in exposing our students to the many opportunities available for them locally and nationally.
