Careers Information, Advice & Guidance


Merstham Park School Careers Education Information Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)

Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is an important aspect of the student learning experience at Merstham Park School (MPS). We prepare our students to make decisions so that they can reach their optimum potential in their education and also their future professional life in the world of work. CEIAG significantly contributes to the school’s commitment to high achievement, inclusive, effective teaching and learning. 

The objectives of CEIAG at MPS are as follows:

  • To ensure that all students at the school receive a stable careers programme

  • To enable students to develop knowledge and understanding of themselves as individuals; their strengths and limitations, abilities, personal qualities, potential, needs, attitudes and values and raise aspirations

  • To enable all students to learn from information provided by the career and labour market

  • The CEIAG programme should be individual and address the needs of each student

  • To link the curriculum learning to careers learning

  • To provide students with a series of encounters with employers and employees

  • To provide students with experiences of workplace(s)

  • To ensure that students have a series of encounters with further and higher education

  • To provide each student with guidance and support 

  • To understand their rights to equality of opportunity that will include awareness that gender should not limit career choices

Careers Programmes 

Careers education and guidance is delivered through afternoon Learning Mentor Time, assemblies and additional career and work related activities with internal and external partners (parents , local colleges, universities and employers). 

How the school measures and assesses the impact of the careers programme on pupils

The School will assess the impact of its careers provision by completing a termly review of CIAG provision, annual curriculum mapping of where subjects undertake CEIAG and a student survey in line with activities that they have taken part in at school. 

Useful websites

For any parents or carers who would like suggestions for online careers information, the following sites may be of interest:

Get in Go Far – a website for anyone wanting to know more about apprenticeships.  The website has a search facility for job specific apprenticeships in a particular area.

Career Pilot – comprehensive information on the jobs market in the south-west.  Contains information on the main employment sectors, including the number of people working in that sector and whether the number is projected to increase or fall.  In addition, information on job salaries, relevant subject areas, top employers and types of apprenticeships. 

Icould – helpful videos about a wide range of job roles

UCAS – a very helpful website for students thinking of applying to higher education.   Also contains valuable information on different options, including apprenticeships

Management of provider access requests & opportunities for access 

The school offers a comprehensive Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme and welcomes enquiries of potential opportunities that can be part of this programme.

The school will make a suitable space available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available ICT and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers SLT lead, Year leader or member of our team.
