Career Planning

At Stourport High School and VIth Form College, we provide a comprehensive Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme for every year group.

Most people spend many years of their life in a working environment and it is therefore important to equip our students with the necessary skills for them to make decisions about their future, to know how and where to access information and to link subject areas and qualifications with possible careers.

Good quality Careers Education will raise the aspirations of and help our students to become effective career planners and managers of their own progression through learning and work. It will increase motivation by linking activities in school with preparation for life Post 16 and Post 18. By providing quality impartial information, advice and guidance, our aim is to raise students’ aspirations and ambitions for their futures and increase confidence, whilst offering equality of opportunity for all.

As written in the DfE statutory guidance 2014, impartial “is defined as showing no bias or favouritism towards a particular education or work option”.  This approach is taken throughout the information, advice and guidance programme and by the delivery of one-to-one careers guidance interviews by our Level 6 CEG qualified and experienced school careers adviser.
