Careers Education, advice and guidance within a school ensures that everybody has the right to education, advice and guidance to assist in decision making and career planning when they leave school. The school follows the guidance as set out by the National Framework for CEG 11-19 in England, the National Curriculum programmes of study for PSHE and QCA guidance for work related learning at KS4.
Section 29 of the Education Act 2011 placed schools under a duty to secure access to independent careers guidance for their pupils in school years 9 to 11. From September 2013 this is extended to years 8-13 and revised statutory guidance has been published to reflect this change.
The school is committed to a planned programme of careers education, advice and guidance for all students in years 8-13 in partnership with the Careers Service
