How We Deliver Careers Educations, Information, Advice and Guidance
CEIAG is included in the timetabled PSHE programme and the form time Personal Development progamme. Years 9 and 11 have specific drop-down Careers days organised at various times throughout the year.
Topics covered in Careers lessons are detailed on the ‘PSHE curriculum maps’ in the Kesteven & Sleaford High School - PSHE KS3 Schemes of Learning (kshs.uk) and Kesteven & Sleaford High School - PSHE KS4 Schemes of Learning (kshs.uk) curriculum pages.
The school subscribes to the platform UNIFROG, this is a one-stop shop for information and links to Subjects, Careers, Online Courses, University Information, Apprenticeship Information, T Levels and much more. There is also provision for students to store details of their personal achievements for CV’s and Personal statements. This platform is extensively used throughout school starting with Personal Skills and Qualities in year 7.
Students can also use the well-stocked Careers library, situated within the main library, which has information on Careers, Apprenticeships and University and College prospectuses.
Employers - Could you help our students understand more about the World of Work?
To enhance our Careers programme, we are seeking Employers to expand our network of companies and individuals who collaborate with us in school, can facilitate on-site visits, and could also offer Work Placements for year 12 students.
We are interested in all careers, from Engineering to the Arts!
If you would like to support our Careers programme and are prepared to donate your time and expertise, it would be great to hear from you. Please contact, firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of our Careers Lead.
Labour Market Information (LMI) for All
Labour Market Information (data and statistics to do with the world of work) is helpful to access as it has implications for people making careers decisions. Parents and students might like to use it to consider the value of committing to lifelong learning, it aids longer term career planning and affects the way people search for and apply for work.
