Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) is seen here at Trafford Alternative Education Provision as an essential part to every students’ curriculum. All students have an entitlement to an appropriate programme of provision. In the current economic climate it is important that your child is given the best possible chance to find information on all the education and training post-16. We aim for every pupil to leave the school well prepared for the next stage in their career. Students should be well informed when making subject and career decisions. We want students to be inspired and motivated to fulfil their potential. Students need to understand career pathways and how opportunities may change in the future.
- Aspiration – it is a good to have an idea of what interests and excites you as early as possible, research the qualifications that you need and aim high.
- Self-development – it is important to understand yourself and to develop your capabilities.
- Career exploration – you need to know how to investigate career opportunities and to make career plans.
At Trafford Alternative Education Provision the first port of call for our students is Jill Mundy. She works with all the local colleges and training providers to ensure your child is informed about all available choices when they leave us.
Our staff work closely with our Careers Adviser Toni Jackson-Wilde to give our students Independent Careers Guidance from Year 7 to 11 through one to one interviews, group work and drop-in sessions. Toni is at TAEP Thursday a.m. This gives the students the opportunity to have a 1-1 careers interview with a Level 6 qualified and completely independent Careers Adviser. Toni is available to students at our request according to the SLA
The Careers Adviser supports students in processing their college or provider application and in conducting interviewing techniques. TAEP not only supports students with college and provider enrolments in the summer break, but also support students once they have left, helping them maintain their placements effectively.
We meet termly with our Careers Advisor to complete the Compass Careers Benchmark Tool, please follow the below link to see our progress:
