This policy has been adopted as a mark of the importance that Governors place on education to prepare pupils for the challenges of their future lives. It recognises that in a world of rapidly changing employment opportunities pupils need to be given equally wide information, experience, and understanding of the world of work. It also accepts that pupils need to be given assistance in recognising their own abilities and aptitudes so that they can develop high and realistic aspirations for their own futures.
We comply with the Gatsby Benchmarks ensuring that we provide the best careers provision for our pupils. This is quality assured in consultation with Liverpool City Region Careers Hub (LCR).
Kilgarth School believes that good CEIAG connects learning to the future. It motivates young people by giving them a clearer idea of the routes to jobs and careers that they will find engaging and rewarding. Good CEIAG widens pupils’ horizons, challenges stereotypes, and raises aspirations.
Through our progressive and robust life skills programme, we support the drive to broaden the skills of young people and aim to deliver a first-class work-related curriculum through a flexible, integrated and innovative approach. This includes a diverse range of activities within the classroom, a wealth of enrichment experiences through external visits and in partnership with a range of providers from outside school.
It provides pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to the next stage of their life. This supports social mobility by improving opportunities for all young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special educational needs and disabilities.
The school’s designated Careers Leader is Ian Keeling (Mathematics lead teacher), KS3 Careers is Alan Daniels (Science lead teacher) and Careers Advisor is Lisa Kirkham (Careers Connect). Any careers related enquiries can be addressed to Ian Keeling through firstname.lastname@example.org.
