Careers & Raising Expectations
The overriding objective of Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at Pedmore High School is to develop the skills, attitudes and abilities of our students to enable them to make effective decisions about their future education, training, employment and life as an adult member of society. This Careers Strategy is to ensure that the CEIAG offer provides learners with high quality opportunities to prepare learners for the next stage and transition in to positive destinations and long-term healthy career success. At Pedmore we will:
Continuously review the impact of our CEIAG.
Increase careers advice and guidance to be an integral part of the schools offer.
Strengthen strategic partnerships with employers and further and higher education institutions and apprenticeship providers
Ensure that the Gatsby Benchmarks are fully embedded in our CEIAG Programme.
In the academic year 2020-2021 the careers programme was brought in to tutor time to ensure students were informed on a weekly basis. Each student has access to Unifrog which is a one stop shop of resources to help guide students through the different career pathways and opportunities available to them. The particular focus for Year 8 students is matching their interests and personality to different career choices. Information is key and knowing the possible options available are important. Next academic year (2021-2022) the careers programme will continue in tutor time but there will also be additional opportunities through the new discrete PSHE lesson on a Wednesday morning, through subject lessons and, with Covid restrictions permitted, external visits/external guest speakers.

A team at GoCompare have put together a report that reveals the riskiest jobs in the UK, seeing how dangerous each industry is and how much it costs the business. They have analysed average salaries across the UK to find out how much you can earn if you choose to work in one of the top five riskiest professions.
