Careers staff

The CEIAG provision at Ecclesbourne School is mapped against the CDI Framework and the Gatsby Benchmarks. Our provision is reviewed annually by the Head of Careers.

Gatsby Benchmarks:

  1. A stable careers programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance


Individual Careers Guidance

From Year 10 students are able to have an individual careers appointment with an independent advisor. SEND students all receive an appointment from Year 9 prior to their annual review. Other students may request an appointment or be guided to one by their Head of Year or Form Tutor.

Appointments are prioritised for students in Year 11 and Year 13 seeking advice and guidance on their next step pathways. At the meeting an action plan will be drawn up and a copy emailed to the student to help them move forward with their plans.

To arrange a careers appointment contact Mrs Parker.

Careers Programme

CEIAG begins from Year 7 and continues through to Year 13. The programme includes lessons based on career planning, self-evaluation, making decisions, economic well-being and employability skills.
