Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

Vision
To ensure pupils, their parents carers, are informed and prepared to achieve aspirational next steps into adulthood and the world of work.

Our core aims:

  • All students, parents carers and teachers have access to careers information, advice and guidance.
  • All students are accessing and engaged in a meaningful and developmental careers education curriculum programme.
  • All students’ transition to a variety of positive destinations.

The Elmwood & Penrose Federation has a crucial role to play in preparing students for transitions for their next stage of education, training or employment. Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are an important and integral part of all students’ entitlement and learning here at the Federation to aid their personal development.

Through a planned careers education programme, we are committed to providing the appropriate activities and experiences to enable students to make well-informed decisions and successful transitions in life and work. We support pupils to prepare for their preferred transitional pathway whether that is to continue with further education, employment, training or living independently. We have a person-centred approach to student outcomes through our EHCP annual reviews process, where we work with all stakeholders to shape clear and ambitious targets for pupils to prepare for their next steps.  Throughout the Elmwood & Penrose Federation our careers programme is known as ‘Futures’.

Futures is led by our Careers Leader, Ryan Parker-Binns – RParkerbinns@educ.somerset.gov.uk
Our impartial and independent Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) is delivered by Emma France (Careers & Skills Adviser) who works for Inspired To Achieve. For more information please click here.

Do you work in a business that could help provide work experience or opportunities for our students?
We are always looking for local businesses that are wanting to inspire and educate our students about the world of work and expand and develop our ‘Futures’ curriculum. If you think you could help to provide invaluable work experience or opportunities that give students the chance to develop core skills and motivation, in the first instance, please contact Ryan Parker-Binns – RParkerbinns@educ.somerset.gov.uk.
