Careers and Work Related Learning

Statement of Intent

All young people need a planned programme of activities both to help them choose appropriate pathways at 14, 16 and 18 years old and to enable them to manage their careers, career progression and sustain employability throughout their lives. Swanmore College provides impartial Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to support students’ transition, not only to further or higher education, vocational training or employment, but to support them in becoming independent managers of their own careers.

We encourage pupils to aspire and value lifelong learning, provide opportunities to develop key employability and enterprise skills which are highly valued by employers, colleges, universities and apprenticeship providers.
The CEIAG programme has been developed to engage pupils, parents/ carers, and local employers, both in school and externally, to support our students in becoming employable and aspirational young people in accordance with the recommended Gatsby Benchmarks.

In our rapidly changing world of work, careers are not simply ‘chosen’ but built through making ongoing learning and work choices, based on a wide range of information and options. To succeed young people need to understand themselves, the opportunities they have to develop their skills and education and how these relate to the labour market and economy.


The Careers Education Information and Guidance at Swanmore College is overseen by they Careers Leader Mrs A Illsley.
