Careers and Positive Steps
What is CEIAG?
‘Careers Education and ‘Information, Advice and Guidance’ has the aim of developing a young person’s knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to make well-informed about their future choices regarding learning and work. This includes, GCSE options, Further Education and Higher Education pathways that include both academic and vocational destinations. Our students receive the necessary support to ensure the Gatsby Benchmark principles are being achieved.
Roles and responsibilities include-
1, Teachers and school staff- To support learners with the chance to learn and develop their understanding about qualifications, careers and employability. To provide opportunities to engage with employers in school and during learning outside the classroom. Copley aims to embed this through each department having Employability, Professional and Enterprise Objectives planned into lesson content using medium term curriculum plans.
2, Positive Steps- Copley Academy has organised the provision of an independent careers service. A drop-in clinic is provided by our career advisor at lunchtime and each student by the time they reach Year 11 will have had a one to one meeting with targeted students having additional intervention.
3, Students- To engage with CEIAG learning, events and visits though asking questions and participating in activities.
4,Employers and the wider community- we are keen to hear from the wider community and employers to support the delivery of CEIAG, in particular ex-students who can return to Copley and inspire our current students’ aspirations and ambitions.
Should you wish to discuss CEIAG further please contact Assistant Principal, Miss Tidbury via email, email@example.com
At Copley Academy we measure our careers provision using the Compass+ Survey and assess the impact of the careers programme on pupils through regularly pupil voice and questioning of other relevant stakeholders.
