As a parent or carer you will want to help your child to succeed. Research shows that parents have a key influence on their child’s career choices. Here at Ashton we want to support you in this. Careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) starts in Year 7 and is delivered through a combination of PSHE, “Challenge Days” and regular form time sessions.
Our programme is designed to help to raise aspirations, offer impartial advice and prepare students for their post 16 choices, with all students in Year 11 receiving an interview to discuss their destination post 16.
As the global job market evolves and technology increases, students will be expected to continue training, learning and adapting throughout their working life. To help students investigate careers for their futures, ACSC has a well resourced careers room and an interactive web based careers advice software, Fast Tomato. We also have regular speakers from Colleges, Training Providers and visits from Workplace Ambassadors.
