Careers Information, Advice, and Guidance
About our CIAG Programme
Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) forms an integral part of student life at Bishop Perowne. Our careers strategy feeds into our pastoral work and the planning and implementation of both our Key Stage Three and Key Stage Four Curriculum. As well as the CEIAG programme that all students experience in Years 7-11 there is also a bespoke targeted programme run for specific student groups, such as pupil premium, SEND, and those at risk of NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).
We encourage all students to develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers, whilst also considering the local labour market. We use contacts with the world of work and further education to help students to understand where different choices can take them in the future. Each year group is given opportunities to engage with business through industry days, work experience, careers fairs, and classroom workshops. Every department within the school has a Careers Champion and CEAIG links are fully embedded throughout our curriculum. Our Alumni are actively encouraged to discuss their careers and the routes they took to them during our success fairs.
We are proud of our Gatsby Benchmark status, having so far fully achieved 7 of the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks. We work very closely with the Careers and Enterprise Company to ensure that our careers programme is the best available in the local area. We also work very closely with our Careers and Enterprise advisors to ensure a wide variety of enterprise activities are offered throughout the academic year.
