Careers Education

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is about helping students to develop the knowledge, confidence, and skills they need to make well informed, considered choices and plans for the future.

Our careers programme is developed in-line with statutory guidelines from the Department of Education and is embedded through Key Stages 3 and 4, which follows the Career Development Institute (CDI) framework for careers and work-related education.

Our students have access to impartial information, advice, and guidance from school staff as well as an independent school careers adviser. We work alongside higher education providers, local further education colleges, apprenticeship providers, employers, the voluntary sector and the local authority to support our CEIAG programme. 

All learners at WASP will experience a relevant and appropriate careers curriculum which promotes equal opportunities, challenges stereotypes, raises aspirations and encourages learners to reach their full potential. Learners are taught to take responsibility for their futures and encouraged to make full use of the learning opportunities, resources and events made available to them. 
We provide all students with the necessary information and guidance for them to make informed and realistic choices about future career and educational opportunities. All students are encouraged to use the Career’s Resource Centre and Portal which has a wide range of up to date information about careers and Post 16 educational options.
