Careers Education and Work Related Learning

Overview

The National Foundation for Educational Research believe that in relation to Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) one of the ultimate aims for schools and colleges must be to make it possible for young people to engage proactively in decisions about their education pathways and their journey to a career. To do this, they need the support of their school; their parents; careers professionals; the local community and employers.

In line with guidance we, at Nonsuch High School for Girls, will aim:

  • to actively encourage and inspire  students to take ownership of their career plans and to consider all options, so that they are able to select the best way forward for their interests, motivations, learning styles, abilities and aspirations
  • to present CEIAG in an impartial manner and promote the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given
  • to provide students access to independent face-to-face careers guidance
  • to provide transparent, impartial and accessible information on CEIAG resources available for young, local (and where appropriate national) education pathways and also expectations of employers, education / training providers and careers professionals

Pupil premium students and those identified as needing extra support are invited to attend workshops run by our independent professional careers advisor or one-to-one consultations. These sessions include further information, advice and guidance on careers and further education. Students are also invited to attend sessions which help them to build upon and improve their self-esteem, self-belief and self-confidence and these are led by a qualified life coach.
