Ideas of what to include in the card or letter could be writing about your experience of COVID-19, your plans for the future, books or TV shows you enjoy, and tips on passing the time. Once completed students should simply sign off with their name and ‘from Merstham Park’

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. We prepare our students to make decisions where 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). 

 

It is never too early to consider your next steps after year 11

What next after your GCSEs?  https://icould.com/article/choices-at-16-what-next/

From apprenticeships to A-levels, check out this guide on how to make the right choice for you.

Where to start

Year 11 may mark the end of your school days, but you still have to stay in education or training until the end of the school year when you turn 18.

So what can you do next? Your main choices are:

  • Full-time study, such as for A-levels or different college course
  • An apprenticeship or traineeship
  • A mix of work with part-time study

Careers Entitlement

Our aim is to provide students with information from varied sources to allow them to make informed decisions regarding options, further education, higher education, apprenticeships and future Career pathways. At MPS we use an independent careers adviser to offer information, advice and guidance to students.  They are a qualified Careers Practitioner. The independent careers adviser will visit school on a regular basis.

All School Years

We will provide the following exciting activities:

Employer Workshops – employers from various industries come into school usually during the afternoon or after-school.  Workshops are advertised to students via the Student Noticeboard which is read out to students during PSHE, on posters. Students are encouraged to sign up for these workshops.

Enrichment Day activities –  We plan activities such as Speed Employer Networking, employer led activities and Charity events. Visits to MPS from Universities, Colleges and employers to share information.  Roadshows to promote healthy living and Career opportunities.

Visits to Careers Fairs – meet local employers, colleges and universities to gain information.

Personalised visits to Local Employers – Usually offered to students in small groups.

Careers interviews – Referrals by staff, students and parents. All students can request an interview with a fully qualified careers practitioner. Please contact the school office to organise an appointment.

Careers & Working Party Club – Tuesday after school.  We explore skills and qualities, we learn about careers and further Education in a fun way.  Students evaluate Careers resources and support planning for future activities.

Year 10

Work Experience (WX) – Students will be encouraged to visit Careers to work with the team to plan for a work experience placement; they must sign an agreement to catch up with any missed work.  It is planned that many of our students will complete their WX placement during the school holidays.

Work Experience Entitlement  – Students will be encouraged to take up to 10 days in Year 10.
