Teaching & Learning



Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is about aspiration as much as advice. It’s about nurturing a student’s curiosity, promoting their dreams, and giving them the confidence and ambition to succeed. It underpins our whole school approach to learning, and embraces the school vision of becoming ‘a beacon of excellence’.

Never has it been truer to say that we are living in fast changing times, so helping students make quality informed choices about their futures is more vital than ever. We strive for our students to have the skills, confidence and inspiration to make the most of the opportunities available ready for the evolving requirements of the 21st century workplace.

Cansfield offers an exciting careers program to bring future opportunities to life. So our young people understand the range of choices available to them, we run careers workshops, training and information days, college and university visits. We have a robust Key Stage 3 curriculum with linked form activities. We participate in national events, look for opportunities to engage with trainers and employers as well as offering high quality one to one specialist careers advice.

All staff embrace and contribute to CEIAG through their roles as specialists in their disciplines. Staff are ideally placed to inspire students through great classroom practice, to research and discover more about opportunities beyond the confines of school. We aim to engage with local and national initiatives, keeping labour market information relevant to all that we plan and deliver.

Underlying all of this is our belief that careers is an individual’s choice and our ultimate aim is to ensure we help and support each student to unlock their potential and transition successfully as they leave us and go on to pursue career greatness.
