Overview

Aldersley School delivers independent careers guidance for all year 7 to 13 students in accordance with ‘The Government’s Careers Strategy’ published in July 2021.  In line with our school vision and ethos here at Aldersley High School, we aim to provide a rounded, fair and challenging careers programme for our young people that challenges stereotypes, raises aspirations, and showcases the equality of opportunity that is accessible to today’s learners when being provided with outstanding guidance. Our careers programme is in line with our key tenets of: Be Prepared; Show Respect; Challenge Yourself

The CEIAG programme is designed to support the school’s academic curriculum to allow all student career choices to be formed out of their experience, progress and achievements, learning and work. All young people will benefit from a planned programme of activities to help them make curriculum choices that are right for them and to develop the personal resources and readiness that will enable them to manage their careers throughout their lives. All of our staff (be those teaching, leadership or support), maintain high aspirations for all of our young people and mentor and coach each individual to have the highest aspirations for themselves. There is a team focus on ensuring each child is aware of how the choices they make with their learning will impact their future careers, lifestyle and wellbeing. In addition to providing a focus on SMSC, Contextual Safeguarding, and Fundamental British Values our form time programme across the school also provides a specific focus on CEIAG. In addition to this all students undertake one careers scheme of work in PSHE every year.

Planned careers education, both standalone and integrated into curricula/form time, will enable students;

  • To develop knowledge and understanding of themselves and others as individuals – their strengths and limitations, abilities, personal qualities, potential, attitudes and values.
  • To raise aspirations and increase awareness of the world in which they live and the wide range of education, training, employment and other career opportunities.
  • To make informed choices about their own continuing progression and development, in education and employment.
  • To cope with change and manage effectively the transitions through school, and to further education, working and adult life.
