Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance

Our Vision

Careers education is a crucial part of a young person’s development. By giving students impartial and independent access to information about a wide variety of possible career paths, we broaden their horizons and inspire them to achieve their goals and ambitions and ‘To be the best that they can be’.

Langley School believes that good CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance) connects learning to the future. It motivates young people by giving them a clearer idea of the routes to jobs and careers that they will find engaging and rewarding. Good CEIAG widens pupils’ horizons, challenges stereotypes and raises aspirations. It provides pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to the next stage of their life. This supports social mobility by improving opportunities for all young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special educational needs and disabilities.

Our careers programme is monitored and measured through pupil evaluations, tracking of student destinations and through follow-on work in partnership with post -16 providers and the information on this page will be reviewed annually.

The schools Careers Leader, Mrs Gray and the Careers Co-ordinator, Mrs Chachou are available for general advice on careers and work experience and work closely with Year Heads and Pastoral Teams. The school’s independent Careers Advisor is Mrs Pryce, from Birmingham Careers Service.
