A young person’s career is the progress they make in learning and work. All young people need a planned programme of activities to help them choose 14-19 pathways that are right for them and to be able to manage their careers and sustain employability throughout their lives. As a school we have a statutory duty to provide Careers Education in Years 8-11 through the English National Curriculum the Entitlement Framework (14-19) and to give students access to careers information and impartial guidance so that they may become effective career decision makers.


St Philip Howard is committed to providing a planned programme of Careers Education and Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) for all students in Years 8-11 in partnership with DCC, D2N2,  Employers and other key stakeholders.


In order to meet the aims of a good CEIAG programme, i.e.:

  • Self-Awareness & Development: Learners can identify, assess and develop the skills and qualities necessary to choose an appropriate career pathway
  • Career Exploration: Learners can identify, explore and investigate the diversity of opportunities available in education, training and employment
  • Career Management: Learners can identify, explore and review appropriate career pathways


The school endeavours to follow the statement of careers education principles and the learning intentions for CEIAG as set out in Preparing for Success – A Guide to Developing Effective Decision Makers (DFE 2009), the Quality Indicators for CEIAG (ETI 2008) and other relevant guidance from DFE and ETI that appears from time to time.
