Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance, (CEIAG) plays a crucial role in our school, and even more so now, because of the current economic climate and challenges facing our pupils. Access to high quality CEIAG is important for all students as it enables them to make an effective transition from school to adulthood and employment. Mossbourne Community Academy recognises the importance that CEIAG plays in an individual’s education and will therefore provide a range of opportunities for students to learn about the world of work, career pathways, and develop their employability skills. As an Academy we strive to ensure that the decisions our pupils make about their futures are well thought through and informed by CEIAG and, therefore, can increase participation in learning and, in turn, raise attainment and support further progression.
