CEIAG is delivered as part of the school’s PSHE programme and through KS5 guidance sessions with Mploy. Much of this is focused on supporting students to make decisions about applying for a place in Higher Education, or moving into the labour market.
CEIAG is delivered through discrete careers lessons, which focus initially on supporting students through their university applications. Students are able to request interviews and discussions with key staff regarding progression beyond school. As much support as possible is provided to help students make good, informed decisions, but there is an emphasis in Year 13 on students being proactive in this process.
In addition to all the above, Pensby High School recognises the importance of careers guidance being impartial and independent to ensure that young people make well-informed decisions about their future careers. Students are able to talk to any member of staff, in particular teaching staff and form tutors, who will offer impartial guidance, or signpost them to other staff in a better position to help. Students are also able to access information independently using school resources or via our Independent careers partner Mploy.
Throughout the academic year students will be offered other opportunities to enhance their ability to make informed career decisions.
Extra-Curricular Programme – Pensby has a varied extracurricular programme that students can sign up to. The activities and clubs on offer can teach the pupils many of the skills that will be required in the work place.
