Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

Here at Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School, we believe that “Education for all = Achievement for all”. This vision underpins all our practices at school: inspiring students to aim high and empowering them with the knowledge, attitudes and skills to make informed decisions about their next steps and meet their long-term life goals.  Through a planned programme of activities, Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG), Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School seeks to ensure all students take their places as suitably qualified and responsible citizens within society.

Students are entitled to high quality, personalised, independent and impartial CEIAG which is integrated into the curriculum and based on a partnership with students and their parents/carers.  The programme delivers explicit learning outcomes, raises aspirations, challenges stereotyping and promotes equality and diversity.

We are always looking to further develop our CEIAG programme and engage with more employers and parents/carers.  Here are some ways in which you could get involved:

  • Talk in assembly (08:50-09:05)
  • Run a workshop about your job/industry/pathway to employment
  • Talk to students taking a subject that links to your career
  • Conduct mock interviews
  • Offer work placements
  • Offer work shadowing
  • Take students on a tour of your workplace

To offer your support, or for further details of how you could get involved, contact our Careers Leader,
