Welcome to our Careers Education

Welcome to our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) website

Careers education and guidance helps students gain the knowledge and skills needed for their future career choices and gives them the information they will need to get there.

Barr’s Hill is committed to providing a planned programme of careers education and information, advice and guidance (CEIAG).

The careers education programme at Barr’s Hill enables students to develop their personal insight, careers knowledge, career planning and management skills. It also offers information and advice that is personalised, comprehensive and impartial.

The aim of the website is that parents and students can gain the information they will need to enable students to make informed choices about their future learning and career pathways.

What is an Investor in Careers?

Barr’s Hill was awarded Investor in Careers Award status in April 2011 and three years later in 2014. A reassessment has once more taken place and Barr’s Hill has achieved the award for a further three years starting from April 2017.

This really is one of the highest accolades an organisation can receive for excellence in this area of work and is definitely something that we are very proud of.

The award must demonstrate that the school has an outstanding programme of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG).

Investor in Careers is a nationally recognised quality standard for the management of CEIAG in schools and colleges.

Successful schools have to meet challenging standards including demonstrating commitment to CEIAG and Investor in Careers, CEIAG policy and practice and CEIAG monitoring and evaluation as part of a continuous improvement.
