What Is CEIAG?

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.

TGA Redditch (TGAR) is committed to providing a planned programme of CEIAG for all students in Years 9-11 (7-11 Treetops only) in partnership with outside agencies (Colleges, 6th Forms, Apprenticeship providers and Universities). TGAR has a strong track record of success with its CEIAG programme, as demonstrated by its ‘destination’ data, which we are required to monitor as part of our CEIAG policy.

The careers programme is designed to meet the needs of all students at TGAR. It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities that are appropriate to students’ stages of career learning, planning and development. The careers programme includes career sessions and career guidance activities, information and research, work-related learning (one week work experience in June/July of Year 10 and 12) and other outside agency intervention.

The academy’s CEIAG strategy is measured against the Gatsby benchmarks, a national framework that schools and colleges can use to develop a good careers programme. Reviews take place every term and the careers policy is reviewed every year in July.
