At the Trinity School all students are entitled to a programme of Careers Education, Information and Guidance (CEIAG) from Years 7 to 11. Parents and carers also have the right to information about students’ future options and are welcome to speak to tutors and Progress Coordinators at school by making an appointment.
Futures Nottingham (the replacement for Connexions) can also provide information and guidance and work in partnership with the school; the Futures Personal Advisors are in school on a weekly basis and also attend various Parents Evenings.
Futures can offer:
- Up to date, impartial careers information
- Independent advice
- Help with assessing careers resources
- Individual guidance sessions to discuss in confidence career planning
- Help in finding work based learning, modern apprenticeships or further and higher education on leaving school
At the Trinity School students are entitled to:
- Timetabled careers lessons as part of the PSHE programme
- Up to date information about options and opportunities
- Unbiased advice and guidance at a level according to their needs
- A one week Work Experience placement in Year 10
- Access to the Careers Library
An entitlement means a young person has the right to CEIAG when it is needed; it is however the responsibility of individual students to take full advantage of these options when they are offered to them and become actively engaged in the CEIAG programme.
