What is CEIAG?

What is Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)?

Beckfoot Upper Heaton is a learning community in which we all; staff, students and parents, share a common set of values to enjoy, to learn and to succeed.

Our Careers Education programme is designed to meet the needs of learners at Beckfoot Upper Heaton. Activities are personalised to ensure progression in their career learning and development, and to strengthen their motivation, aspirations and attainment.

A young person’s career reflects the progress they make in learning and work. It is part of the vision and mission of Beckfoot Upper Heaton that no learners will become ‘Not in Education Employment or Training’ (NEET). We believe that all learners need a planned programme of activities to help them choose Year 8 to Year 11 pathways that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers, sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives.

Beckfoot Upper Heaton recognises that it has a statutory duty to provide careers education in Years 7 – 11 and to give learners access to impartial careers information, education and guidance. We are committed to providing a planned programme of impartial careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) for all learners in Years 7 – 11, in partnership with engaged providers; and to provide extra support as required for learners with additional needs. Beckfoot Upper Heaton endeavours to follow best practice guidance from the careers profession, from other expert bodies such as Ofsted and from Government departments that might appear from time to time.
