Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG)

King Solomon recognises that it has a statutory duty to provide impartial and objective Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to pupils in Years 7 to 11. CEIAG at King Solomon is seen as an integral part of the curriculum, which is available for every pupil. CEIAG enables the pupils to make impartial, informed, balanced and appropriate decisions about many key areas of their future development, progression and career pathways. CEIAG at King Solomon is completely impartial and it enables CEIAG to be delivered in an objective and balanced manner by all staff so that each pupil receives exactly the same opportunities to explore potential pathways. CEIAG is delivered across the curriculum and through our Career Days. We also source independent and impartial CEIAG Advisers to provide additional support for pupils. In addition to this, any advice or guidance given to pupils is personalised and appropriate. We believe that working with outside agencies is an invaluable part of the CEIAG curriculum on offer.
