Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance is the composite term that refers to the total range of discrete and integrated activities provided by the College, training organisations and other agencies to enable learners to develop the necessary career management and employability skills in order to become employable. These activities and resulting skills will allow learners to make informed choices and decisions affecting their future education, training and employment.
The overall objective of CEIAG provision is to enable learners to become effective career decision makers, empowered to manage their own career development successfully, confidently and with due respect and care for their needs, those of others and of their wider communities. There are three aims needed to realise this objective as stated in Preparing for Success:
AIM 1 – Self Awareness and Development – identifying, assessing and developing the skills and qualities necessary to choose and implement an appropriate career plan.
AIM 2 – Career Exploration – acquiring and evaluating information, and reviewing experiences to identify and investigate appropriate career pathways and learning opportunities in education, training and employment, locally, nationally and internationally.
AIM 3 – Career Management – developing skills in career planning, and employing effective career decision making strategies to manage transition and make suitable career development choices, with the appropriate support, advice and guidance.
