Education, Advice and Guidance

Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance is a part of every student’s entitlement and here at Ashton on Mersey School, we are committed to using a variety of learning experiences to help young people manage the key decision points in their lives. The education they receive prepares them to make informed decisions about the next learning or employment stage for them.

Behaviour Management Policy

All pupils have access to careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) as part of the curriculum. The programme is delivered in PSHE lessons and through subject lessons. This allows pupils to explore individual career options, gain an awareness of the job market and to develop the core skills needed for employment.

Pupils will get the opportunity to meet with Mrs Evelyn Eyong, the Careers Adviser at key decision points in their school life, and at other times if they are in particular need of support. At this time, they can talk about their ideas for the future, explore the range of options after they leave school and plan the steps to achieve their end goal. All pupils can expect advice and guidance that is personalised, comprehensive and impartial.

Support on offer to pupils includes:

Work Experience

Employers – How can you help?

It is important that pupils have access to the world of work and with your help we can make that happen. We want pupils in all year groups to understand the world of work through employer engagement so that all our young people will successfully transition out of secondary school life ready, equipped for work and life-long learning. As an employer you can play a significant part in helping us achieve our goal.

If you are interested in providing any of the following, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

  • Work Experience
  • Careers Talks
  • Pupil mentoring
  • Offering a work place visit
  • Providing resources/ sponsorship

Miss F Clarke, has the interesting and challenging role as Work Experience Coordinator for the school.
