Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

At King James we are committed to ensuring that all our students have high quality impartial advice on career opportunities, and that they progress onto appropriate courses on leaving the school. It is very important to us to know that all leavers have a plan for their next step.  Our Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) statement is detailed below.

We support our students in making well-informed decisions by providing access to differentiated, impartial and independent information and guidance about the range of options (including academic, vocational, apprenticeships) that are most likely to help them to achieve their ambitions.  We believe that giving students the best careers education and guidance is vital to improving their motivation to learn and help them to achieve.


Year 10 work experience

Work experience will take place in the week of the 15th-19th July (last week of the Summer term). Work Experience provides pupils with the opportunity to learn more about the world of work by moving outside the classroom and into an adult working environment. It enables them to put into practice skills learnt in school, gain new experiences which help them to understand the relevance of their learning in school and become more responsible. It is for these reasons that we expect all pupils in Year 10 to participate in this worthwhile activity.
