Our Careers Partners
The Academy commission BP an independent organisation of highly qualified careers advisers who offer 1:1 careers guidance for our students. Please visit their website for more information. www.bestpracticeuk.com
We also work with Develop to organise high quality work experience for students in KS4.
CEIAG stands for Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance and it is a statutory part of our provision for students. At All Saints Academy, we are committed to working with students, parents and carers to ensure the best life opportunities in the future.
The programme of CEIAG is developed as students progress through the Academy with every year group receiving some provision to help them on their journey to success. Although all students are provided with independent careers guidance from Year 7 (11-12 year olds) to Year 13 (17-18 year olds) there is a particular focus at the various transition points e.g. in Year 8, when students are making option choices and in Year 11 when students are thinking about life after GCSE.
All Saints Academy Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) will aim to provide current and relevant information to enable each student to make informed decisions about their future. It will be presented in an impartial manner, be confidential and differentiated to suit the requirements of each student.
The Careers Programme will be integrated into students’ experience of the whole curriculum and will be appropriate to our students’ stages of career learning, planning and development. The Careers Programme will raise aspirations, challenge stereotyping and promote equality and diversity.
The Careers Programme will promote equality of opportunity, diversity and inclusion, whilst promoting the best interests of the students to whom it is given. All Saints Academy will ensure that all students are aware of opportunities outside of the Academy which could help them with their career aspirations, such as the National Citizen Service and other voluntary and community activities.
