Careers Information, Advice and Educational Guidance (CIAEG)

Overview

Every child should leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. All children should receive a rich provision of classroom and extra-curricular activities that develop a range of character attributes, which underpin success in education and employment. They also need to be well informed when making subject and career decisions.

High quality careers guidance is crucial in helping pupils emerge from school as well rounded individuals ready for the world of work. At Matravers we achieve this through our diverse CIAEG strategy which offers bespoke careers guidance and support to all students. These include:

  • Mock interview days with employers and HE/FE institutes.
  • 1:1 careers guidance
  • Interview skills and CV writing workshops
  • Careers fairs
  • Careers talks
  • College and University visits
  • Inspiration and motivational talks from a range of guest speakers
  • Financial awareness workshops
  • High quality work experience
  • Employer mentoring
  • Tutor programme
