Careers Education Information and Guidance (CEIAG) is statutory from Y7 onwards and Prendergast School fully embraces the stipulations of the Education Act 2011 and other statutory guidelines from the Department for Education (DfE).

The school also acknowledges the OECD definition of Careers Guidance as: “Career guidance refers to services and activities intended to assist individuals, of any age and at any point throughout their lives, to make educational, training and occupational choices and to manage their careers. The activities may take place on an individual or group basis, and may be face-to-face or at a distance (including help lines or web-based services).”

Furthermore, at Prendergast School we are committed to provide ‘Outstanding’ CEIAG for all students. We recognise that an overwhelming majority of our parents and students place great emphasis on accessing Higher Education and we will continue to meet that need. The school’s Core Values underpin the work of the Careers Department. All students are able to achieve but can only fulfil their potential if they understand themselves, their abilities and the possibilities available.
