Heathfield is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education for all students and information, advice and guidance in partnership with a number of independent bodies. We endeavour to follow the National Framework for CEIAG 11-19 in England and other relevant guidance from the DfES, QCA and Ofsted.
The underlying principles of CEIAG within the school are to promote:
The careers programme at Heathfield is designed to meet the needs of students. It is differentiated and personalised to ensure progression through activities that are appropriate to students’ stages of career planning and development. Students are entitled to guidance that is person-centred, impartial and confidential. It is integrated into the students’ experience of the whole curriculum and is based on a partnership with students and their parents or carers. The CEIAG programme promotes equal opportunities, inclusion and anti-racism.
Careers education and guidance at Heathfield is given in a variety of ways.
The careers programme is planned, monitored and evaluated by the Careers Coordinator in consultation with the Careers Advisor and the Senior Management link.
