CEIAG – Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance

Introduction

Boston Spa Academy recognises the importance of effective Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance for young people and we expect all our students to have high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers.

The Academy is committed to providing comprehensive and good quality information, advice and guidance to all students to enable them to make effective decisions for the future about a wide range of career pathways. The programme aims to inspire students, raise aspirations, broaden horizons and challenge stereotyping.

We provide access to a wide range of activities that inspire young people, including motivational speakers, workshops, mock interviews, workplace visits, college and university visits.

Christine Humerstone, our qualified Careers Adviser, is based in the Careers Office in our library. She provides students with careers education sessions and independent and impartial advice and guidance regarding their career and further and higher education decisions.

We welcome contact from employers, colleges, universities, training or apprenticeship providers. Our Provider Access Policy sets out our academy’s arrangements for managing the access of education and training providers to students for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the academy’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
