Careers Education

Careers Education Advice Information and Guidance (CEAIG)

In St. Colm’s High School, we acknowledge that Careers Education Advice Information and Guidance (CEAIG) has a crucial part to play in enabling the aims and objectives of the curriculum as well as the individual aspirations of individual pupils to be realised.  This is achieved both discretely and collectively in the curriculum that we offer and the skills we develop.

We aim to provide our pupils with a planned programme of work related learning concerned with: the development of their employability skills; and relevant careers education, advice information and guidance.  We believe that effective preparation for the world of work should contribute to the personal fulfilment of each pupil and how s/he achieves their full potential. 

Our CEAIG programme is delivered to each year group through careers modules, timetabled classes and whole school curricular input as follows:

Key Stage Three

          

  • Careers Module and Personal Career Planning. Yrs 8, 9 & 10.   

  • LLW classes to include Employability.

  • Access to DE Careers advisor.

Operating alongside these classes is a programme of work related experiences for each year group delivered by external agencies such as Young Enterprise, Lisburn Enterprise Organisation and Barclays Lifeskills.  These workshop type events frequently make use of local employers to increase the relevance of the content.
