Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) Strategy at  St Thomas more school 

In providing CEIAG we will have regard to the Gatsby guidelines and will endeavour to provide:  

1. A rich and informative careers programme with clearly identified aims and events, customised for each year group of the school. 
2. A programme that incorporates the latest information from career and labour market current trends, thus updating pupils on the pathways and study options available to them, particularly in the local area. 
3. Each student with access to guidance and analysis which allows them to discuss their careers and training options for when they leave school. 
4. Relevant information in curriculum subject areas as to how different courses of study lead or predispose towards different careers. 
5. Timely encounters with employers and employees.
6. Work experience in Year 10 for each pupil.  Work experience will additionally be built into vocational programmes of study where appropriate. 
7. Opportunities for pupils in every year group to have encounters with personnel from further and higher education.
8. Personal guidance from an independent and impartial careers advisor (during Year 11). 

We aspire to present information to our pupils in an objective and impartial manner, highlighting the full-range of education and training options including apprenticeships and technical education routes.    This aspect of our programme will begin in Year 8 and continue through to the Sixth Form (the designated age ranges).

We are open to ensuring there are opportunities for a range of bona fide education and training providers to present information to pupils (in the designated age ranges) pertinent to opportunities.  Providers wishing to present at the school should contact Mr Ruggiero for a discussion.  We will also keep a library of materials in an accessible place for pupils.  Telephone: 020 8888 7122; email: careers@stthomasmoreschool.org.uk

As there are limited opportunities to speak to pupils we may refuse requests.
