Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

Overview

There are many times during a student’s life when they need to consider their options for the future.  The careers provision at Matravers aims to provide education, advice and guidance across many different formats.

We have a careers library (in the school library) where students can access lots of material about courses, jobs and universities.

Careers education is delivered in collaboration with PSHE and during tutor times throughout the school. 

Take advantage of our Little, Big and Bigger Interviews to prepare you for the world of work.
