St Mary’s Catholic Academy has a statutory duty to provide impartial and objective Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) in Years 7 to 11. CEIAG at St Mary’s is seen as an integral part of the holistic curriculum, which is available for every student and this is evident in the Personal Social and Health Education Curriculum (PSHE)

CEIAG at St Mary’s Catholic Academy is impartial and it enables students to explore potential pathways through the work of our Independent Career Advisor Mrs Angela Callagher. The work Mrs Callagher carries out with our students is personalised and appropriate. St Mary’s offers a full education entitlement to the age of 18years but also allows all providers an equal opportunity to provide current information to the students.

  • To equip students with the necessary decision making skills about future progression and their destination when they leave St Mary’s.

  • To provide students with current information on courses at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.

  • To give opportunity for maximum exploration of future careers including work experience opportunities where possible.

  • To decrease the possibility of students making incorrect transition choices.

  • To understand how the ‘world of work’ works.

  • To keep up-to-date with new careers emerging from technological advances and understand the labour market.

  • To ensure all Year 11 students have at least one post-16 pathway guaranteed when leaving St Mary’s.

  • To ensure our most vulnerable students are supported beyond St Mary’s so that they do not become NEET (not in education, employment or training).

  • To ensure all PP/SEN students receive further impartial and independent guidance from an external Careers Advisor.
