Welcome to St Edmund’s Catholic Academy Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) website. Our innovative Careers Department here at St Edmund’s Catholic Academy is run by Mr Rawal and Mrs Hogg, preparing all of our pupils for their future beyond the school gates.

Our students will be taught a wide range of skills needed to succeed within the world of work and be inspired to challenge the stereotypes and discrimination that exist within certain sectors. They will gain experience from many encounters with employers, and learn about different careers and the various routes into these careers. They will understand how different vocations can help others and the environment around them.

What is CEIAG?
Careers Education, Information And Guidance (CEIAG) is an essential part of the curriculum at St Edmund’s Catholic Academy. CEIAG helps students gain the knowledge and skills needed for their future career choices, giving them the information they will need to get there.


Our Aims
Our CEIAG programme aims to inspire students to make informed and appropriate choices and plans for their future career choices, for Further and Higher Education, and ultimately for work.

Careers Guidance
The programme starts at Year 7 and goes right through to the Upper Sixth (Year 13), guiding our students through those all important decisions for their future. We pride ourselves on giving students a well-rounded education and as part of their learning, we have developed a broad and extensive careers programme. This enables students to develop their personal insight, careers knowledge, and career planning and employability skills by offering advice that is personalised, comprehensive and impartial.

Our students have access to the fantastic Unifrog resource which offers comprehensive information about colleges, undergraduate university courses in the UK and overseas, apprenticeship schemes in the UK.

What is the Baker Clause?
Introduced as an amendment to the Technical and Further Education Act 2017, the Baker Clause stipulates that schools must allow colleges and training providers access to every student in years 8- 13 to discuss non-academic routes that are available to them.
