Careers and Work Experience

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:
