Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance Policy (CEIAG)

Introduction

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Opportunities for access

Our provision includes various opportunities for students to access a range of events. These are mainly integrated into the schools careers programme and curriculum. These events are therefore delivered internally, with contribution from external providers where appropriate.

CEIAG programme

Students in years 8-13 are entitled to:

• find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point.

• hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships.

• understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

At points across the school year, a variety of employers and external providers are invited into Sedgehill School to talk about different careers.

Procedure

Local providers are invited to key relevant events. In addition, external providers interested in coming into school should speak to our Careers Leader to identify the most suitable opportunity. A provider wishing to request access should contact our Library and Careers Coordinator, Alex Mees, via amees@sedgehillschool.co.uk.

Once visits have been agreed, the school will provide appropriate rooming to facilitate the visit, along with any equipment requested by the provider, where it is available.

The school policy on safeguarding sets out the school’s approach to allowing providers into school as visitors to talk to our students.
