Investors in Careers
We are going for the Investors in Careers Award!
As part of the continual development of our Pathway to Employment, we are working towards our Investors in Careers Award. This is the most widely used nationally recognised quality standard for the management of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG).
The Award has been structured in such a way that it meets the requirements of legislation and Government guidelines relating to CEIAG (DfE statutory guidance March 2015 and Ofsted September 2015). It provides a framework for both the delivery and for the evaluation of CEIAG and the process can help to provide independent, objective evidence for inspections (e.g. Ofsted). Many organisations gain great value in their communities by the public recognition they receive for their provision of CEIAG via the Award. In most cases the acquisition of the Award will exceed the expectations of inspectors and the public who sit on awarding panels. An additional spin-off from the Award is the integration of CEIAG within the curriculum and the whole school approach to gaining the award.
All Investors in Careers Award holders have to demonstrate a commitment to provide impartial, independent careers education, information and guidance to all young people. We feel we are already exceeding this standard.
