Careers Education

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

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programmes make a major contribution in preparing young people for opportunities, responsibilities and experience of life. They help young people make decisions and manage transitions as learners and workers. It is vital that all 11-16 year olds have the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices. We strive at all times to conform to the current “best practices” in Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance laid down by the government.

Ellis Guilford School is committed to providing a planned programme of CEIAG for all students in Years 7-11, in partnership with outside agencies. The careers programme is continually assessed and monitored in line with whole-school quality assurance procedures, to ensure it is meeting the statutory requirements for careers education and guidance.

The School Careers Department can help you with one-to-one careers interviews as well as information, advice and guidance for:

  • Colleges
  • Sixth Forms
  • Academies
  • Apprenticeships
  • Traineeships
  • Universities
  • Creating a CV
  • Filling in Application Forms
  • Upcoming Open Days
  • Personal Statements
  • Interview Preparation

The Careers Office is located on the plaza for easy access during break times and after school.
