At LHS we believe that in tandem with an academic education all students should receive information, advice and guidance to maximise their learning once they progress into the world of work. We hope that our Careers Programme will provide students with the opportunity to plan and manage their careers effectively, ensuring progression which is ambitious and aspirational. It intends to equip students with skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding as a foundation for managing their lifelong career and learning. It promotes equality of opportunity, celebrates diversity and challenges stereotypes.
The objectives of the Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) at LHS are:

  • To ensure that all students at the school receive a stable careers programme
  • To enable all students to learn from information provided by the career and labour market
  • The CEIAG programme should be individual and address the needs of each student
  • To link the curriculum learning to careers learning
  • To provide students with a series of encounters with employers and employees
  • To provide students with experiences of workplace(s)
  • To ensure that students have a series of encounters with further and higher education
  • To provide each student with the opportunity to receive personal guidance

LHS is committed to providing all students with a stable careers programme from years 7-11. As part of the PSHE curriculum we provide career-related lessons, activities where local businesses help to provide a realistic experience such as mock interviews, college and apprenticeship events and trips related to various career topics. The full CEIAG policy can be found here.
