Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

Click here to read our Careers Policy.

Students will be involved in a number of seminars and activities focused on them achieving their potential through raising aspirations and increasing participation in further/higher education. We work with organisations to run these activities such as; Hull University, National Citizen Service (NCS), Humber Outreach Programme (HOP), LogonMoveon and PUSH. These form part of the Uni Connect Programme, formerly known as National Collaborative Outreach Programmes (NCOP).

For information regarding how students data is managed by the University of Hull click here - we will obtain your consent before sharing any information with these organisations.

A number of adults in school provide advice to students; Careers Leader, Head of Year, Tutors, Teachers and Mentors about a range of matters. Support can also be accessed from the Youth and Family Support Service. They offer impartial information and support for students aged between 11-19 years. Discussions can cover a wide range of issues, including post 16 options, difficulties in school, relationships, drug/alcohol awareness, housing, bullying, family support, sexual health and money matters.

Careers Advisor

Advice helps students interpret information and apply it to their own situation; guidance is the in-depth support provided by qualified practitioners to help students explore their options and make informed choices that are best for them.

Advice and guidance are closely linked to related activities such as tutoring, progress reviews, academic monitoring and mentoring. Through these activities the CEIAG staff can help students look at future options and identify when students need to be referred to advisors for more in-depth guidance.

Our level 6 qualified Careers Advisor is available to provide guidance to students. All students will have the opportunity for a one to one careers guidance interview to discuss their future plans and ideas. This will include opportunities to discuss career aims and the options available after their GCSEs (post-16 & post-18). Appointments to see the Careers Advisor can be made through the Careers Leader or the Student Services team.

Support is also available for students when applying for college, sixth form, apprenticeships or employment including application forms and CVs. Parents and students are welcome to speak to Miss Lawes, Careers Leader about careers information, advice and guidance during break and lunch times, alternatively by email at hayley.lawes@hessleacademy.com or by contacting the school on 01482 648604. In addition, Mrs Price, Deputy Headteacher can also be contacted.

*Our Careers Advisor commissions independent and impartial careers advice and guidance that is effective in meeting the needs of all learners including SEND and disadvantaged students.
