Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) forms an important part of the curriculum at Wadebridge School. Supporting students in gathering information and ideas for their future education and work pathways is vital in helping them to link their academic studies with their future aspirations. Students who have a plan, albeit one that isn't set in stone and is likely to change during their time in school, are more likely to engage fully with their studies and be more motivated to achieve their goals.
Careers education and information is delivered to students by tutors and teachers, and through interaction with outside organisations in a number of ways from Year 7 to Year 13. Advice and Guidance is delivered by an independent adviser attached to the school and who is an expert in this field. They are able to offer one to one sessions for those students in need of additional support; they have access to a wealth of resources and information from a wide variety of sources and connections. The advice offered is impartial and not linked to any one academic institution which means that students will receive advice tailored to their needs and consequently more likely to succeed in supporting them with making informed decisions about their future.
Successfully supporting our students with making choices for their future is very important at Wadebridge School and we believe that this starts early and involves not only the school and the students but also their parents and carers too. Ideas for their future education, jobs and careers are often conceived outside of school through the influences of parents, relations, friends and peers. Many things will influence and inspire young people and it is therefore crucial that dialogue between home and school is encouraged. Parents evenings are a good opportunity for discussion about future plans and our independent adviser is always available to answer questions and guide parents and carers towards suitable resources and support.
