Careers & Work Experience

Welcome to the careers information and work experience page. We recognise the importance of careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) and ensure that throughout the year, students have opportunities to engage positively with their futures, both in terms of increasing expectations and exploring the best routes into the careers that interest them.  In line with the Department for Education guidance, we have a coordinated programme of careers support designed around the Gatsby Benchmarks and CDI Framework to offer a coherent programme embedded within school structures. A summary of our CEIAG programme, student entitlements and policy access statement can be viewed using the relevant links on this page.

Evaluation of our programme is demonstrated through the school maintaining the Investors in Careers Award, given in recognition of our commitment to CEIAG, and our destination data providing comparable information on the school’s success. Details on our destinations are available on the WG6 website
