Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance
Careers Education, Guidance and Employability play an important part in the lives of students at Hagley Catholic High School. The aim of our programme is to provide students with the skills and knowledge to make wise and informed choices regarding their future and develop skills to prepare them for their working life.
CEIAG enables the pupils to make impartial, informed, balanced and appropriate decisions about many key areas of their future development, progression and career pathways. CEIAG at Hagley is completely impartial which enables CEIAG to be delivered in an objective and balanced manner by all staff, so that each pupil receives exactly the same opportunities to explore potential pathways. CEIAG is delivered via discrete lessons in Year 10 and via the PHSE and Tutorial Programme in all other years.
The school’s CEIAG Coordinator is Ms Shattock. There is a Careers Drop-In area in the Hub, which is available to every student. Here students have access to up to date information about their future options via leaflets, books, magazines and university prospectuses in addition to advice from Ms Shattock.
Employability skills and work experience is a major focus in Year 10 and 12, in preparation for work experience and in Year 11 and Year 13 have a robust programme in order to ensure that students are very well prepared for their next phase of life.
In addition to this, any advice or guidance given to pub44pils is personalised and appropriate. Hagley Catholic High School also believes that working with outside agencies is an invaluable part of the CEIAG curriculum on offer and we work with a significant number of universities and employers to ensure that individual student needs are met.
