CEIAG is an ongoing process throughout a student’s two years in sixth form. Students are fully informed about the benefit of university and are encouraged to attend open days. Students have access to a range of university visits and are regularly presented to by university representatives.
Once they make the decision to submit an application students are helped throughout the UCAS process and have one-to-one personal statement support. During the final few weeks of the summer term year 12 students undertake work experience, with the aim of further improving their personal statement content.
Students who express an interest in apprenticeships receive one-to-one support throughout the application. They also have the opportunity to attend a Careers Fair, where companies from around Merseyside offer information and guidance regarding the apprenticeships they offer.

Provider Access Statement
This statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of Providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the Provider’s education or training offer.
This complies with the schools legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
Students in Year 8-13 are entitled:
•To find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeship opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point
•To hear from a range of local Providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships
•To understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses
For pupils of compulsory school age these encounters are mandatory and there will be a minimum of two encounters for pupils during the ‘first key phase’ (year 8 to 9) and two encounters for pupils during the ‘second key phase’ (year 10 to 11). For pupils in the ‘third key phase’ (year 12 to 13), particularly those that have not yet decided on their next steps, there are two more provider encounters available during this period, which are optional for pupils to attend.
PROVIDER ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS
A provider wishing to request access should contact the Careers Team via email: [email protected]
A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer Providers an opportunity to come into school to speak with students and/or their parents.
The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support the provider presentations. This will also be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the careers team.
Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature for the Careers Team. The information will then be displayed in the school careers hubs.
Monitoring and Evaluation
The school’s work on CEAIG is supported and quality assured through our work with Career Connect, Compass+ and the Liverpool City Region Careers Hub. The senior assistant headteacher oversees the work of the careers team, working closely with the strategic Careers Lead and the Careers Coordinator and reports on evaluation and impact through the school improvement plan, which in turn is shared with the governing body of the school. The CEIAG policy will be reviewed as part of the school’s policy review cycle and evaluated against the Gatsby benchmarks for Careers Education.
