Extensive work and research with stakeholders, local schools and the Area Learning Community has gone into the preparation of the Year 11 Programme. All students receive one 45 minute period of timetabled CEIAG every week as well having access to a booking system for one to one careers advice through C.A.T (The Careers Advisory Team) in school. The Programme is supplemented by visiting speakers, the Young Enterprise "Project Buisness" seminar and our highly successful Work Experience Programme when students enter the work place for one week in June. The Programme is structured around the guidelines in the DELNI Joint Strategy Document "Preparing for Success" and involves raising student awareness of their skills and qualities, values and achievements, helping them to develop up to date career plans, a study of self employment and much more.
