The Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) Programme at The Appleton School is designed to support students in developing the skills, knowledge and experience that enable them to make informed decisions about their future career options. Students learn about the different educational routes available, the range of occupations and sectors that make up the labour market and consider how they will choose a job and do well in the future.
We provide a comprehensive and up to date programme that is based upon the Gatsby Benchmarks and the Career Development Institute’s (CDI) framework for Careers Education.
The core programmes of study are delivered through Citizenship and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (CPSHEE) lessons, drop down days and during tutor time and this is supported by a programme of extra-curricular activities. Students also learn about careers throughout the curriculum and each department will deliver activities linking their subject to relevant careers and the skills required.
The Sixth Form Programme consists of an excellent varied programme of visiting speakers from industry and education as well as visits to higher education establishments, employers and careers fairs.
