Careers Education Plans

Every student will find an individual pathway to University and Career Success based on informed decisions and in-depth Careers Education Information and Guidance (CEIAG). As a school we pride ourselves on preparing our students for progression beyond the Colne Community School.  We do this through a well thought out programme designed specifically to meet the needs of our students.  Our careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) scheme of work (SOW) is in line with both the CDI Framework for Careers, Employability and Enterprise Education 7-19 and theGatsby framework. 

Our CEIAG programme is a mixture of small careers events, activities, practical workshops, talks, lectures and visits all designed to encourage our students to explore different career possibilities and think outside of the box.  All of the programmes teach students much needed skills for when they leave education and enter the world of work.

The CEIAG programmes develop our students’ skills and knowledge including:

  • independence
  • appearance - dress for formal environments  
  • interaction with professional adults  
  • business etiquette skills appropriate for all work environments
  • knowledge of the world of work and further and higher education  
  • self-marketing skills
  • labour market
  • resilience and grit
