Careers

 
 
 

A young person’s career is their pathway through learning and work. The aim of the CEIAG Department is to provide a planned programme of classes and activities to help pupils make decisions and plan their careers, both in school and after they leave.

“The overall aspiration is that young people will develop the skills and confidence to make the most of their life choices and follow the career path which suits them best.” (Preparing for Success, Jan 2009)

 

KEY STAGE 3: EDUCATION FOR EMPLOYABILITY

All pupils in Years 8, 9 and 10 follow the CCEA Education for Employability programme. Education for Employability is central to the role of the curriculum just as work is central to most people’s lives. The programme incorporates four key dimensions: Work in the Local and Global Economy; Career Management; Enterprise and Entrepreneurship; Skills and Qualities for Work.
