Careers Education Information Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

Woldgate is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education and information advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all students in Years 7-13, in partnership with impartial careers services, businesses, employers and FE/HE organisations.

Pupils are entitled to careers education and guidance that is impartial and confidential. It will be integrated into the student’s experience of the whole curriculum. The programme will raise aspirations, challenge stereotyping and promote equality and diversity.

In recognition of our dedication to providing good quality CEIAG, Woldgate was awarded the Humber Gold Standard for CEIAG in March 2016.

Woldgate’s CEIAG policy promotes the following aims:

  • To contribute to strategies for raising achievement, especially by increasing motivation.
  • Self-development – assessing their strengths to inform future learning and work choices and develop positive self-esteem.
  • Career exploration through the provision of a wide range of resources.
  • Work place experience through the Year 10 Work Experience Week.
  • Progression planning through the provision of IAG from support across the curriculum, impartial careers advisors, organised progression activities and events and develop an understanding of the changing nature of work, learning and career choices.

Please explore the CEIAG section of the website further. If you have any questions regarding CEIAG provision at the school, please contact the Careers Coordinator at: careers@woldgate.net
