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.
the careers programme is delivered throughout the year via tutor time; weekly lessons of PSHE; through subject specific curriculum; external visitors; off site trips and many more opportunities. 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.
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.
