CEIAG Intent

The CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance) programme at Mount St Joseph school aims to enable students to prepare themselves for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experience of life beyond school.  We aim to help young people make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. 

We will:

  • Provide the very best careers education, information, advice, and guidance throughout our students’ school journey, starting from Y5 and Y6 transition events through to Y11 college and apprenticeship applications and beyond into higher education, higher and degree level apprenticeships, and the world of work. To enable them to make well-informed decisions, with developed plans, to achieve their career aspirations
  • Encourage the development of self-awareness and independent thinking
  • Develop employability skills such as initiative, communication, and teamwork
  • Help students to understand the decision-making process
  • Equip students with information on current opportunities
  • Provide meaningful encounters with employers, employees, and training providers
  • Provide appropriate resource materials for research and evaluation
  • Offer support from our guidance team
  • Promote a culture in which the pupils set for themselves aspirational goals, which will advance their interests and passions
  • Assist parents and carers to support their children in their career choices
