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.

T Levels are new, two-year, technical study programmes, designed with employers to give young people the skills that industry needs. They are equivalent to 3 A Levels and will carry the equivalent number of UCAS points.
T Level study programmes will include the following mandatory elements:
- a ‘core’ set of underpinning knowledge, concepts and skills, tailored for their chosen industry and occupation: ‘core content’
- specialist training covering occupational or industry-specific skills: ‘occupational specialist content’
- an industry placement with an employer, which will last for a minimum of 45 working days
SPECIFIC ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
- Grade 4 in GCSE Maths and GCSE English Language
The core content focuses on students’ knowledge and understanding of contexts, concepts, theories, principles and core skills relevant to the Digital T Level. This will include, where appropriate, assessment of knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to the route and the pathway. This breadth of content will help to ensure students are able to apply their skills in a variety of contexts and for a variety of different purposes.
The core content is assessed through an examination and a practical employer-set project.
The employer-set project ensures students have the opportunity to combine core knowledge and skills to develop a substantial piece of work in response to an employer-set brief.
