Careers Information Advice and Guidance
Here at The Marvell College we feel it is very important that you get the support you need to make informed decisions about your future. Careers information, advice and guidance (IAG) is an essential part of the support offered by the college.
The provision for Careers Information Advice and Guidance (CIAG) is an important part of our curriculum at The Marvell College. We believe that an exciting program of activities, events, opportunities and experiences is vital in helping to ensure that our pupils are well placed to make informed choices about the next stage of their education, employment or training when they leave The Marvell College.
Ensuring that our pupils are well informed about the options that are available to them and well qualified in order to access a full range of opportunities is the first step in ensuring a stronger, fairer, and healthier society.
A strong CIAG program from year 7 to 11 inspires pupils to plan their journey towards a career that fulfils their ambition and in doing so, work hard to develop the knowledge and skills that they need to play an active part in the job markets of the future. Through our curriculum we also challenge and support pupils in developing important values and personal characteristics that will help them meet the demands of the careers of the future. These include things such as pride, resilience, perseverance, adaptability and teamwork.
Our programs for CIAG is constantly under review as we consider the needs and views of our pupils and guidance we receive from the Government and local industry partners who support us in the design of our CIAG curriculum. An overview of our CIAG provision map is available below.
In order to provide a program for CIAG that is of the highest standard we work towards fulfilling ‘The 8 Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Careers Guidance’ which are detailed below. These are an important part of the Governments Careers Strategy: making the most of everyone’s skills and talents. December 2017.
