CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance)

Legislation introduced in September 2013, requires that young people continue in education, employment or training until the age of 18. The Linden Centre understands the importance of raising the post 16 aspirations of all our students. The information below explains how this is done through our Careers Programme.

The Linden Centre has created a careers programme, which is informed by the Gatsby benchmarks (see below) and the Baker clause (provider access statement). We review the careers programme annually during the summer term. We use students, parents/carers, staff and employers’ feedback to enhance the careers programme.

Our careers programme can be seen here:

Gatsby Benchmarks

  1. A stable career programme
  2. Learning from career and labour market information
  3. Addressing the needs of each pupil
  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with further and higher education
  8. Personal guidance

Staying in Education

Our aims are to:

  • Equip students with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to make informed decisions about their post-16 plans and progression through a relevant careers programme.
  • Support students with personalised information, advice and guidance to help them build the confidence and empower them to take charge of their own career development and progression.

Provider Access Statement

This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer.  This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

In accordance with the updated legislation, we are committed to ensuring that KS3 students will be given access to two encounters with providers of technical education and apprenticeships and a further two encounters in KS4.  These encounters are to be with different providers across the five years and are meaningful for the students.

Our provision includes various opportunities for students to access a range of events.  These are mainly integrated into the school’s careers program and curriculum.  These events are delivered both externally and internally, with contribution from the external providers where appropriate
