CEIAG – Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance


CEIAG is designed to prepare students for life in modern Britain and is a means of developing a young person’s knowledge, understanding, confidence and skills so that they can make well-informed and thought through choices relating to further learning and work, now and in the future.

School for Inspiring Talents aims to provide good quality, impartial information, advice and guidance to all students from Year 7 to Year 11. This guidance allows us to support our students and allow them to make information decisions for their post-16 choices following Year 11, but also their choices for bespoke learning and opportunities throughout their time with us.


Measuring the impact of CEIAG

At School for Inspiring Talents, we use Compass Plus – the careers benchmark tool as outlined in the Gatsby benchmarks to assess and constantly improve our current CEIAG provision.

Our progress against the Gatsby benchmarks is reviewed regularly throughout the academic year to ensure we meet all 8 benchmarks.

As a school we work with parents, employers and stakeholders to ensure that students are able to make informed choices about their future.



All information published on this CEIAG webpage will be reviewed at the end of each academic term. The CEIAG plan in school is reviewed each year by the Careers Leader and was last reviewed March 2024.
