CEIAG at Braidwood

Not so long ago, CEIAG was a local authority (LA) responsibility. It mainly consisted of face-to-face careers guidance to provide young people with information on progression routes with schools throwing in a sprinkling of careers education.


However, changes to the economy and society have meant that CEIAG within schools has taken on a whole new meaning. Twenty-first-century life places complex demands on young people for work, so enabling students to become self-confident, skilled and career-ready learners must be an integral part of their education.


At Braidwood School we provide opportunities to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable life-long skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking and communication which are fundamental for our students to make the successful transition from compulsory education to their futures



At Braidwood School we aim to ensure that all our students are prepared to make well-informed decisions about their future career progression, employment, training or further education. We have a statutory and moral duty to provide students in Years 8 to 13 with careers education, information, advice and guidance and we fully meet the needs of the Statutory Guidance (https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/440795/Careers_Guidance_Schools_Guidance.pdf )

 At Braidwood School we extend this to include Year 7.


We are committed to providing Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEAIG) to all students through the curriculum and organised activities as well as through a dedicated programme of independent careers advice.
