At Bradley Stoke Community School, we provide a comprehensive Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme for every year group.
Most people spend many years of their life in a working environment and it is therefore important to equip our students with the necessary skills for them to make decisions about their future, to know how and where to access information and to link subject areas and qualifications with possible careers.
Good quality Careers Education will raise the aspirations of and help our students to become effective career planners and managers of their own progression through learning and work. It will increase motivation by linking activities in school with preparation for life Post 16 and Post 18. By providing quality information, advice and guidance, our aim is to raise students’ aspirations and ambitions for their futures and increase confidence, whilst offering equality of opportunity for all.
In Year 12 & 13 information, guidance and advice is delivered through the core programme, tutor sessions, talks from a range of external agencies and one-to-one support from a designated Post 16 Learning Mentor. The majority of our students go to university after completing their post 16 studies and in preparation for this students attend the UCAS convention, a university open day, a UCAS applicant event and a wide range of other events, including summer schools, access courses run by Bristol University, Oxbridge conferences and a variety of taster days.
