At Granville we believe good Careers and Impartial Advice and Guidance (IAG) are essential for all young people throughout their education.  Impartial careers guidance is a major factor in raising aspirations and developing a ‘can do’ resilient attitude. These qualities will encourage students to become more engaged in opportunities available at school, in the local community and further afield. 

Alongside reaching their academic potential, we want every child to leave Granville with a full range of outstanding ‘employability’ skills such as self-motivation, team work and entrepreneurial skills. 

Through their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) lessons all students receive regular, structured Careers Education from Year 7 through to Year 11. In addition specialists from a variety of Post 16 and 18 providers frequently present to or work with whole year groups or small groups. These sessions are followed up during lessons to embed the information further and allow for additional issues to be discussed.  

Careers Entitlement

We are committed to providing a planned programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance which focuses on developing the following skills for students:

· Career Management

· Career Self Development

· Career Exploration

 Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance

Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is extremely useful in preparing students for the opportunities and challenges of adult and working life. CEIAG is seen as playing an important role in motivating our students to maximise their academic and personal achievement whilst at school.

CEIAG is taught across the school and we acknowledge that an effective CEIAG programme will increase the student's life chances and make it more likely that the individual student reaches their full potential.

By the end of Year 11, all students will have been offered at least one careers interview. These can be either with or without parents/carers.

Students can request a careers interview with our Careers, Work Experience & Aspirations Lead, Mrs F Staley by visiting the Support and Guidance office or speaking to their form tutor.  Click here for the Careers Leader role
