CEIAG by year group

Year 7 - Aspirations and dreams

In Year 7 students begin to think about their futures, what they want and what they will do. This unit is about self-awareness in which they will start to look at the skill, attributes and qualities they have and how this will help when choosing the right career path for them.

Year 8 - What’s out there?

Students use their hobbies and interests to look at careers and job families. They will spend some time researching different career paths and looking at the local labour market. Students look at making well informed realistic decisions.

Year 9 - Making the right choices

Students set SMART targets for themselves. They look at what is involved in the different courses available at school at KS4 and what they might want to study post 16.
