Careers and Work Experience

CEIAG (Careers education, information, advice and guidance) & Work Experience

We encourage all students at Longsands to develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. We use contacts with the world of work and further education to help them understand where different choices can take them in the future.

We have a clear careers framework in place which is linked to outcomes for students – please refer to the Careers Framework Document 2021.

The Government has raised the participation age (RPA) so that all young people in England are now required to continue in education or training beyond the age of 16. They are NOT required to stay in school; they can choose how to participate which might be through:

  • Full time study in a school, college or training provider;
  • An apprenticeship or traineeship;
  • Full time work or volunteering (20 hours or more) combined with part time accredited study.

If you have any questions please contact Mrs Martindale – Head of CEIAG kate.martindale@astrea-longsands.org
