Careers Education Information Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

As a school, Haybrook College has a statutory duty to ensure that all students are provided with ‘independent and impartial careers guidance’. In addition to adherence to this Department for Education (DfE) guidance we believe that one of our ultimate aims is to make it possible for young people to engage proactively in decisions about their education pathways and their journey to a career.

CEIAG helps supports students to make informed choices about their future, helping them to reach their potential and aspire to their future options. A young person’s career is the progress they make in learning and work. CEIAG helps young people:

  • Develop the knowledge they need to make well informed and thought through choices.
  • To be able to manage their careers and sustain employability throughout their lives.

Haybrook College is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education, information and guidance for all students in Yr7-13 in partnership with ADVIZA and Slough Young People’s Service.

We believe that CEIAG will actively encourage and inspire young people to take ownership of their career plans and to consider all options. To do this they will need the support of Haybrook College, their parents/carers, careers professionals, the local community and employers. Working together we can inspire young people to be ambitious for their futures.

Provider Access Policy

New Careers Statutory Guidance

The DfE released a new statutory guidance document in January 2018, including a number of new requirements for school careers programmes, most of which are to be met by the end of 2020. Many of the requirements are already met at Haybrook College, but we will be working towards those that are not.

The most immediate requirement is for all schools to have a policy for ‘Provider Access’ so that everyone is clear on how and when outside organisations will be allowed access to Haybrook College students to promote other educational routes and training opportunities. The Provider Access Policy, January 2018 can be found below.

Investor in Careers

At Haybrook College, we work hard to provide a varied programme of careers education plus information, advice and guidance through a variety of external providers such as our Careers Coach from Adviza, Kerry Burnell, Kevin Ruan, Key Worker from Learning to Work and Tina Coombes EET Engagement Worker from Slough Young People’s Service.

We have been awarded Stage 2 of the Investor in Careers award, which involves us reviewing our whole careers programme right from careers policy to individual lesson content, ensuring that we fully meet all of the statutory requirements and evaluating the programme in the light of input from staff, students and parents/carers and Governors.

Below are links to the most recent Parent/Carer and Student Surveys, please take a few minutes to complete them, as your feedback is invaluable in developing our Career programme.
