At Lyndon, we strongly believe that providing good quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is a vital part of a student’s learning and development. Giving students access to impartial and independent information will not only broaden their horizons but also raise aspirations and inspire them to work hard to achieve their long term goals and ambitions. We feel that students who are well motivated and have a clear vision of their future are more likely to extend themselves academically.
The strength of our careers programme is demonstrated by a continual reduction of our NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) figure year on year and as such, in 2020 we had no students leave Lyndon without securing a place in either education, employment or training.
The implementation of our CEIAG programme is designed to include a range of activities to ensure that all students from Years 7 – 11 are supported and offered:
- Information on further education, higher education, technical qualifications (T Levels), apprenticeships and other opportunities available at each transition point.
- Information from a range of local providers about opportunities including educational and work based options such as apprenticeships and T Levels.
- Information on how to make applications and the employability skills required to secure employment. Students in Year 11 will also receive a one to one careers interview with a qualified careers advisor.
