Careers

Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) are an important and integral part of learning, and contribute to the development of the whole person here at Cansfield High School. We have a critical role to play in preparing young people for adult and working life. Our students will gain knowledge of themselves and the opportunities open to them in preparation for transitions into the next stage of their education, training or employment.

In accordance with advice from the government publication Careers Strategy: Making the Most of Everyone’s Skills and Talents (Department for Education, 2017), our aim is to ensure that all students at Cansfield High School receive ‘Careers guidance and encounters that are dynamic and link to the real employment opportunities available in future. In a fast-changing economy, it is essential that we make school and work more closely connected than ever before so young people from all backgrounds have the knowledge, skills and experience to succeed in work’.

Cansfield students will have the skills, confidence and inspiration to make the most of their life choices. We will help our young people understand the range of opportunities available to them in today’s economy and acquire the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in the work places of the future. This is done through one to one careers advice, drop down careers days and learning within PSHE / Life Studies lessons about careers in general, within discreet disciplines focusing on careers in relation to particular subjects and through activities completed in form time. Our holistic approach ensures that our students are prepared for a successful and rewarding career, following the path that best allows them to shine brightly beyond our school.
